That wouldn't be particularly catastrophic though. If it's found after,
say, five days, you just move the latest upload that got diverted to
experimental back to unstable, and keep going.

Alternatively, you could do something like have uploads with an urgency
of "risky" or something get diverted to experimental until the previous
version either (a) makes it to testing, or (b) spends, say, fourteen
days not getting it to testing and "times out".
