Wouldn't it be better to (c) implement some sort of 'fair' scheduling
instead of a pure first-come-first-serve system?

Because (a) sounds unlikely, and (b) seems hard to define properly
(what is a 'huge' package? when is 'night'? and when are people
allowed to do these builds?) and also hard to enforce.
