Given that the only really relevant thing is when the package enters
testing, which already can be changed by the maintainers, the only thing
a maintainer can wish is to have his package build within the 2 or 5 days,
or? As only 2 days might be a problem, wouldn't just prefering high+security
uploads be enough to make everybody happy without disrupting the buildd
order too much?
