This raises a question that I cannot find a clear answer to:
How are builds prioritized on the buildbots?
I would hope that in an ideal world, some priority is given to large,
slow, and heavily-depended-upon builds. It's also easier to say that
than to actually implement it, but it would help address a real pain
point in using MacPorts.
