According to those numbers, I don't really see how it could become a
viable solution to require that packages support building using
dpkg-buildpackage -j.

This option is nice for maintainers, to build their own packages, but it
seems better to push #209008 instead, so packages that take a long time
to build have a common interface to specify that parallel builds.
