And the uploader will get an "override disparity" mail when uploading a
new version which doesn't agree with the override file, so it should be
corrected eventually. When I do an NMU and notice this, I tend to file a
minor-severity bug about it so that it'll be fixed sooner rather than
later - but there's no particular urgency.
