However, I'm not sure enabling parallel building by default is a good idea.

There have been no complaints this far and makes building packages on my machines faster.

For example, buildds probably do more than one build at a time.

Really? AFAIUI, at least buildd doesn't support this OOTB.

I'd rather leave that in until a buildd admin asks us to stop doing that.

As I wrote in an earlier mail today, this is not only a matter of pleasing build daemons, but more generally about following Debian Policy:

Our packaging should _support_ the use of multiple CPUs, but we should not by default _enable_ that support but leave that to the user of our packaging.

Kind regards,
