Perhaps that was a slight misunderstanding: the Nybbles only require "the
release architecture must have N+1 buildds where N is the number required to
keep up with the volume of uploaded packages" with N <= 2.
The part about emptying once per day was only added by Andreas.
Considering the effects of a twelve-day build of something big like KDE, GNOME
or X: delays in security updates, shlib-deps, build-depends and testing
migration, I can see the roots of the requirements on buildds.
