Actually, the root requirement was a reason for me not to use
pbuilder. And personally, I would not like to have an automated
building process running as root on any box that has productive jobs.
Which pretty much takes us (currently being in the top 900 seti@home
sites and having considered using the CPU cycles that currently go
into seti for building Debian packages) out of the race.
