There's definitely an open bug for adding this, and I'll be happy
for it to be added.  It shouldn't be too hard to implement, though
we would probably want to make it configurable whether the repeat
build failing should fail the build as a whole.  We probably want
to do the repeat after we've copied the built files out of the
chroot.  We could probably also compare the file paths between
the source and binary packages in the first and second builds;
comparing the content itself is probably not realistic.
