Well, one can do something about the build ordering.  Packages which
many packages build-depending on them should be given priority.  And
packages could be sorted in build-depend order, to avoid trying to
build package foo before it's build-dependency libbar only to see it

Besides, I don't think it is necessary to have an insane amount of new
buildds to reduce the problem.  A little redundancy, and some
overcapasity should be able to solve most of the problem.
