What happens if a requested port needs a newer dependency? Does it build it locally and trigger the buildbot to schedule it? Ideally, it could do that, or even, depending on the buildbot's current jobs, it could at least rebuild the remaining dependencies of the requested port and make those available for download, since it would probably take more cycles to build locally and it won't be distributed anyway.
