If the architecture is really badly lagged, a significant dent in the
backlog should be achieveable just by building from sources that have
reached the mirror network.

How so? I seriously doubt it will take more than 100 lines of perl to
produce a list of packages that needs to be built on architecture X,
and where all build-dependencies can be fulfilled now. Sorting them in
reverse wanna-build order may take some more work, but if the arch is
stalled by hundreds of packages, even random selection should help.

Which might trouble the big evil w-b admin enough to allow the buildd
into the fold. Or might not.
