One comment for the D-I team...

I've included a fairly strict check of allowed version numbers, based on 
what we've used in the past. This is mainly because we don't want really 
weird versions ending up as directory names on the mirrors.

The following formats are allowed:
- YYYYMMDD              : regular upload to unstable (e.g. 20080128)
- YYYYMMDD\.[0-9]+      : 2nd upload to unstable on same day (20080128.1)
- YYYYMMDD[a-z]+[0-9]+  : uploads to (old)stable (20070308etch2)

The check for the first 8 chars is not really for valid dates, but just for 
eight digits.

I don't think we need any more variants, do we?

The scheme does not support NMUs or binNMUs, but it seems like a good idea 
that they _not_ be processed automatically (as I'm also not sure we really 
want them anyway).
