[maemo-developers] Squeeze devkit to be installed to autobuilder

First off, a big thanks for this effort. My package (soon to be two
;-) uses Qt, so I'm not sure how much this will help me personally, it
is definitely an important step in the right direction.

For those packages that are OK, importing them automatically is fine.
However for those that do have problems, the developer should be able
to control when it gets moved. I think the major lesson learned here
is to try hard not to replace a working package with a broken one. It
would be unwise to do the same thing again. Scenarios include
abandoned packages, long developer response times, etc ...
