cocoa-oj6 already build-depends against the new fastjar, so build
times won't improve. the slowest architecture is armel, the package is
only built on armel, s390, powerpc, i386 and amd64. 32bit sparc is not
supported by cacao in the current form as distributed by upstream.

the estimate is wrong. the openjdk-6 package runs the testsuite. if
the security team prefers shorter build times, then the testuite can
be disabled in security uploads. the testsuite is not run in the
cacao-oj6 package.

if the security team has the opportunity to use a faster machine,
please consider using it.
