I see two potential solutions:

1. Provide separate hardware for the buildbot
2. Avoid building certain blacklisted packages. Optional: schedule
periodic or nightly builds for those packages.

Can you come up with an example of a different build? Where would the
source code come from?

There's one more issue: multi-ISA packages. I have a vague idea how to
implement them, but I don't have the proper environment at hand to
actually do that.
