A developer having done a build doesn't say much about its buildd
buildability at the moment (I know, i've had borken stuff uploaded

This appears to me a matter of good practice, and *perhaps* a degree of
sanity enforcment by tools (e.g. the currently accepted good practice of
building in pbuilder is not enforced by having binary uploads, however
most developers recognise it as a good step to take before uploading).
