I'd say that the time to create a larger i386 buildd infrastructure and
some way for the Arch: All binaries is less than the combined time to
set up lots of litte chroots by themselves. This is just a guess,
though, especially as some maintainers still want their own chroots to
check their build-depends before they upload the package.

But then, a buildd is still different than 400 chroots at the
maintainers' homes, as it would be the same for all (or at least quite a
few, since it hopefully will be the maintainer's choice), which in my
opinion is a good thing and works well.

Uh. guess that is a bit confuse. I just think that the benefits are
larger than the effort to create the infrastructure.
