Speaking as somebody who has set up his very own little multi-arch
buildd/sbuild/wannabuild empire in the basement, I can attest that it's
not a task suitable for a beginner. On the other hand, it's definitely

Let's face it, the existing buildd setup does have a few problems (it
wastes CPU time, wastes bandwidth, and wastes admin time), and multibuild
is designed to solve them. I only hope that, when it's ready, people will
examine the code on its own merits.

Unfortunately, if the current flameage is any indication, I'm not going to
hold my breath.  :-(
