Ok, let me be blunt about this.
It is a political problem, the dpkg/buildd/ftp-master admin have not the will
to implement such a solution, and thus block any attempt to implement this
kind of problem.
We would need at least a dpkg and build tool upgrade for this to happen, and
the developer of those are the ones in the let's drop all arches camp.
