The patch seems good. Except a complainment bellow...

I am not good for wording review (Christian, could you take a look on
this?) but regarding the .exe handling:

 - for now, BYHAND ought to default to 'no';
 - we ought to set it to 'yes' for uploads targetting stable and testing;
 - I think we ought to have it named <suite>-win32-loader.exe where
suite is squeeze, wheeze and so on.

Having it separated on tools allow for different set of features and
updating cycle do not compromising stability for stable users and
allowing for easier and faster updating for testing users when we
think it is "good enough".
