Please don't wait anymore. new devtools help a lot and are ready to
use. Right now i have to fix the 32/64 suffix for all chroots by hand
and spread it over all chroots.

Pending issues/tasks:
- checkpkg should also make use of PKGDEST and check if the old pkg
already extists there.
- integrate a switch to revert the upload/commit/tag/order
- force to use checkpkg and namcap in extrapkg - devs have to prompt to
go further
- later mkchroot scripts

Can we bytecompile namcap to have it together with devtools in
core/devel without having python there? It would be helpful to have it
there as long as we have usual "always staying" chroots. Once we create
a new empty chroot for each pkg i think we have to make sure all our
tools are usable inside the chroot.
