But this is no FTBFS bug than. I just want to keep packages which will
have FTBFS bugs which can be automatically detected out of the door.
Currently we have more than 100 FTBFS bugs. It is hard to say which
of them could be detected at upload time. But if there is an
automatic method to sort out packages even before they enter unstable
we should do so to stop their influence to other dependant packages.

Well, but this is done automatically. I do not want to change anything
