Well, if we could guarantee that release-related uploads were given high
priority for building (which will be the case once t-p-u and testing-stable
are live), then I don't see any reason that the current mipsel buildds
would be unable to keep up with *that* volume.  So I don't think this is a
release blocker; it might be, but until we know for sure, it seems to me
that getting wanna-build set up for sarge is of greater importance.
