I think putting it into debian-qt-kde.mk may be more appropriate, since 
it is (currently) the KDE team's strategy, not a global policy.

If, in the future, we'd have a more general way to control this, like 
designating certain build environments as "low memory" or "slow", then 
I'd be happy to consider it further.  But I'm afraid that if we put 
arbitrary architecture-specific build variations in a central place, 
then before long people will come with all kinds of crazy requests.
