I've spoken with Lucas on IRC before and his work is really useful. But
his work has a different goal. Lucas does checks on current archive.
My buildd can do builds before packages enter the archive. E.g. I've
used it to rebuild all packages build-depending on ant before I uploaded
ant 1.7.0 into the archive to make sure it dont break too much. This way
I found a breakage in ow-util-ant-tasks with the new ant version.
