Notice that buildd maintainers are doing almost that for
fail-to-build-from-source bugs, so it is not entirely

Basically, maintainer system is somewhat working with 
build failure bugs, where we have 

1. buildd.debian.org to initially check build failures
2. bugs are filed after buildd maintainers check the build log
3. if maintainer does not respond, someone NMUs the build failure.
