Yep. To be fully exact, the order of packages is not implemented in
buildd, but in wanna-build, and the default order compares the
following fields in that order:
- status (out-of-date > uncompiled)
- priority (required > important > ...)
- section (libs > base > devel > ...)
- package name
Note that Section: libs is pushed up, because such packages are often
needed by other packages...
But the order isn't hardwired, a individual buildd could request a
different one by giving the --list-order argument to wanna-build

Which ones do you suggest?
IMHO dpkg, e.g., is more important to rebuild than some kde prog :)
