Uploads are different from building.
Who said the maintainer should stop building packages or test what
they do before uploading? They deserve to be shot.
Its good for the autobuilders to check again if a package builds in a
mainly minimal environment. Esspecially since binary-all packages are
never crosschecked with binary uploads.
