Hi Stephen etc.,
IIUC, this is a summary:
make source, build package, upload i386 deb to incomming, tell wanna-build, [build
on buildd, upload non-i386 deb to incomming] repeat for all archs
Is the issue: 
1) buildd availability (network or amount)
2) buildd admin responcivness,
3) arch-specific issues that cause build problems for non-i386 not getting fixed?
(would that be the 'porters' job?)
4) buildd software issues(pbuild,sbuild,wanna-build,etc)
5) something else?
as I've never been a party to this, I'm trying to get more insight into
the 'improbability drive' that powers Debian. Do I need a pan-galactic
garggle-blaster and a towel first?
