Edos-debcheck results (first step)

Hi all,
I set up a daily script that runs edos-debcheck on intrepid and hardy 
archives. All these results are (obv.) public [1].

For who don't know edos, it aims to be a complete resolver of package 
dependency ( i.e.: it reports all non-installable packages, and only non-
installable packages). More infos about edos project could be found here 
[2], they're surely clearer than me. :)

A talk about edos and mancoosi (mainly the latter) was done by Zack at the 
last debconf. [3]

ATM the results could be found only in raw text, but i'm working in order 
to have other format ( xml at first glance ).
Results are of three kind:
- edos.results files are results of edos-debcheck on the base archive.
- edos_build* files are results of edos-builddebcheck 
(edos algorithm on Build-Depends: constrains)
- edos_*update* files are buit with -updates repositories actived.

Besides, a list of non-empty results files is [4].

Note that for a couple of bug [5], universe of intrepid has no 
builddebcheck results for both architecture.

I hope that could be useful for preventing some FTBFS bugs, and some 
installation issues.
Comments are welcome. :)
