Is it possible to have builds go and upload even when there's some
number of broken packages? i.e. if most of KDE4 is broken, can
everything else not dependent on it be built automatically and
uploaded?  This would keep more packages up to date without increasing
the workload on you to manually fix and upload.  I'm wary of burnout.
