I'm in favour of some simplification. Here's my usage:

I have a few related projects. I want to build them from the same source
tree. Ideally I can have them all built within one check-out, so I can
quickly make a change and test it in multiple projects (without checking
in, updating the other check out etc).

I don't care if everything is rebuilt for each project.. (except the
toolchain possibly). I think the current mix of build_arch /
project_build_arch is a mess, I'd prefer to have everything in
project_build_arch really.
