I vaguely remember discussing some design with few involved people at

nothing happened and we are still maintaining last century Perl

bikesheds. If you are interested, I could share those ideas with you
but I leave that for another reply or thread.
FWIW, I have rewritten the buildd side in Python
(https://salsa.debian.org/pkern/pybuildd) and am currently waiting for
that to be deployed. There were concerns about how DSA wanted this to be
packaged (essentially not at all). Replacing the buildd side with
something relatively simple to understand is somewhat a prerequisite to
change the wanna-build side...
