Why is the 'universe' repository for Ubuntu not available in OBS?

It seems that at the beginning you (OBS
developers/maintainers/sysadmins) thought 'universe' was a moving
target but Vincent Untz quickly corrected that misunderstanding.

Many essential packages are in universe, which makes very difficult to
build Ubuntu packages in OBS. Examples of widely used libraries which
are only available in Universe: Boost, Apache Portable Runtime (APR),
FastCGI, libpng until Ubuntu 9.04, Rails, etc

Having to build every 'universe' package I need is a nightmare.
Please, add 'universe' to OBS.
