Which architectures out-of-dateness is ignored is based on how their
respective buildds are going. I'm intending to use <85% as a reason to
start ignoring architecures, and >90% as a reason to make the checks
start counting again. At the moment arm, m68k and powerpc are ignored.

 The current wanna-build statistics for the architectures in testing

  i386:    99.41% up-to-date,  99.41% if also counting uploaded pkgs
  alpha:   92.98% up-to-date,  93.11% if also counting uploaded pkgs
  sparc:   92.05% up-to-date,  92.11% if also counting uploaded pkgs
  arm:     85.28% up-to-date,  85.37% if also counting uploaded pkgs
  m68k:    77.76% up-to-date,  78.01% if also counting uploaded pkgs
  ppc:     (unknown)

the number of out of date warnings in update_excuses for each architecture
(which should roughly match the above stats) is:

     30 i386
     87 alpha
    138 arm
    145 sparc
    228 m68k
    286 powerpc

The wanna-build stats for unreleased architectures, fwiw, is:

  mips:    64.83% up-to-date,  64.83% if also counting uploaded pkgs
  ia64:    51.69% up-to-date,  52.33% if also counting uploaded pkgs
  hppa:    21.51% up-to-date,  22.19% if also counting uploaded pkgs
  mipsel:   1.91% up-to-date,   1.91% if also counting uploaded pkgs

(I don't have stats for hurd-i386, sh or s390)

Thanks go to Ryan Murray (neuro) for setting most of this up for me :)
