Take into account, though, that there are plans to re-design from
scratch the projectb database. In fact, such re-design already exist,
I'm sure ftpmaster can give pointers to it.

I think this is reasonable if projectb contains all the data the w-b
database needs. We'd save going to Packages/Sources, which is good. But
if we need to go to Pacakges/Sources to fetch additional information
like Build-Depends, then there isn't much point.
Also, what Roger said about w-b not requiring a projectb instance.
Roger, maybe the gathering of data for w-b db could be made pluggable,
with a default implementation fetching if from Packages/Sources, leaving
room to plug a second implementation which atacks projectb?
