Hum, ...

so the buildd admin really examine all the packages for deviation that a
compromised buildd could have incorporated before signing them ? Or that they
scan the machine for a compromise and always detect them before signing ? 

I seriously doubt that this may be a criteria, and as said, ubuntu does it, so
we could work something out as well if the will was there for that.
