I do hope this mess can be sorted out after squeeze is released.
Mandating build-arch and build-indep would be a good thing, IMHO.
It's not the buildd software that can change this though--the
actual sticking point is dpkg-buildpackage, which is used by sbuild.

sbuild is actually perfectly capable of installing Build-Depends-Indep
and removing Build-Conflicts-Indep when invoked with the -A (build
arch-all) option, but there are no buildds building arch-indep packages
yet.  If we ever throw away uploaded binaries and build everything on
buildds, this would then be useful.
