Certainly not, I'm all for doing rebuilds of reverse dependencies if
possible. So do you have any plans on how to implement this? Should the
rebuilding be done before uploading a new version, or will that take too
long? Or should we just have an ongoing archive rebuild as a QA effort?

Yes, but first we need a way to specify dependencies in terms of ABI like
what is done with C libraries.
