No, we couldn't. The only requirement for a package to go into non-free
is "Debian must be allowed to distribute it". That does not include
automated compilation (or even compilation, for that matter) or porting
the thing to a different architecture. Apart from that, many autobuilder
admins (including me) will simply not want to run an autobuilder
building non-free packages.

(No, that doesn't mean I won't build a non-free package if the
maintainer asks for it, which I have done in the past, but that's a
different question)

That's OK, but then don't start pointing fingers. Thanks.
