Aaah, the old "every upload is a candidate" solution.
Let's say I upload a version of my package. A day later, I upload another
version. The first version doesn't get anywhere near enough testing, and a
bunch of packages get rebuilt against the later version.
The first version will effectively propagate into testing without any prior
testing. If, for some reason, the second version gets blocked, then we have
a potentially very buggy version of a package in testing, and potentially
into a release.
