And that there doesn't seem to be anywhere for single-package staging to
be done. (ie, if I feel that some of my netbase uploads are likely to be
buggy and don't want to wreck it for the people who're running critical
things on unstable, I'd need to make a request to Guy wait a few days,
then upload to a special area)

Additionally, this doesn't do any sort of "all packages will be in a staging
area for a week just in case they have unexpected severe bugs, and if they
don't they'll be moved automatically".

There's no reason why these couldn't be added, and, personally, if they
were, I think doing something like this would have all the benefits of the
whole prerelease thing, without the package-pool thing. Personally.
