FTR, this list was only meant as an overview, not as a means to prod
buildd admins or the release team to do something with it. :-)
I planned to request give-backs via mail to -release.
All the items below need further analysis.

I believe they will need only retries once a new kde4libs is uploaded
to unstable (which will fix the current qreal/float/double ABI breakage
on mips/mipsel). That said, I haven't tested if that's enough.

At least washngo still fails, I haven't tested the rest of it.

Those _may_ build now, but that's untested.

I mail the P-a-s administrator about once a year, I never got a response.
