We have had problems with arches keeping up for years. Rather simple
changes in the scheduling[*] of the builds could improve the situation.
Also, we have an architecture qualification page, where it's clear that
several arches don't provide buildd redundancy.

The fact that we are not addressing those problems shows that the
problems aren't that severe, since we prefer to deal with them again and

[*] Possible improvements:
- give higher priority to packages that could go to testing if
  the builds were there
- give lower priority on slow arches to packages that haven't been built
  yet on fast arches. If a fast arch has already built the package, a
slow arch is less likely to lose time trying to build a package.
