Yeah. That would help. But so there's a lot of packages that need
attention by buildd-admins.

Well, but that'd be something for the buildd-admin to collect.
(Or maintainers of the packages, but that doesn't seem to fashionable

There isn't, thats why it says "buggy, could requeue", not "needs
retry". Also if you had a lot of cycles to spare, the last build log
would actually reflect the current problem...

The dep-wait is well inside the "some action of the buildd maintainer is
needed". The needed P-a-s entries could be handeled centrally if the
problem description is "pile of maybe-failed packages".
OTOH above sample is biased: There's only ~57 Packages where apt-get
fails or dpkg complains about wrong arch.
