No; we've got a few "buildability" requirements that are required, and
a few that still aren't. The aim is to work towards having them all be
guaranteed; but we don't really have enough time left over from fixing
all the things we're currently trying to guarantee to add new things.

Expecting things to autobuild correctly first time round, expecting
things to stay buildable in unstable (although maybe not building the
exactly correct thing), and having roughly the complete source code for
everything are the basic requirements we have at the moment.
