Please, no. Our autobuilder architecture is only half-automated for a
reason. I won't trust any computer to *reliably* decide whether a build
failed because of a transitional problem (unresolved build-depends,
network problems, ...), because it shouldn't be built ("architecture"
header in debian/control), because of architecture-specific problems
(toolchain), or because there was a bug in the package. Your suggestion
would only be The Right Thing in the last case...

(no particular objection to the rest of your mail, though)
