Before you go starting flamewars about it, you'll probably need to do
a chunk of work to make sure the autobuilders (and the archive) can
actually cope with this...

(At the moment source only uploads don't work, the autobuilders may or
may not be able to correctly determine when a source only upload needs
to be built, the i386 autobuilder probably couldn't cope, only finding
out that your package doesn't build at all a day after you upload it is
probably fairly awkward...)
