Here's a solutuion to the source distribution problem. Whenever we add a new
release to debian, we could increment the release number. Ie, if we release
just i386 as debian 2.1r1, then when m68k is ready, we bump the version up to
debian 2.1r2. This means we release a new source cd as well (and new i386
cd's, which will have minimal changes).

I doubt this would mean much more frequent changes to debian's revision
number than we have now - we have to change the revision number occasionally
for security fixes anyway.
