Actually, I think Nikita’s suggestion is interesting, and probably
better than forcing Albin (or his sponsor, for that sake :-)) to build
stuff on a slow machine. Buildd time is cheaper than developer time.

/me wonders if any policy is broken if the same source is uploaded to
unstable, by just changing the Distribution in the .changes files. It
might even avoid buildd runs :-))
