If my assessment is correct then
- delayed is not handled by debianqueued
- the old delayed system relied on developers being able
  to log in to delete stuff from the delayed dirs
  (I might be totally wrong on this, but it's my guess without
   doing a great deal of research.)
- this is not feasible anymore, as .commands only work in current
  (queue) dir.

One possible solution would be:
- Change the delayed system to use .DELAYED.xx-day extensions instead of
  subdirs
- Adjust upload tools

I'd volunteer to implement the serverside and/or dput client side of
this, lets say until Sunday evening CET.
I've also very recently submitted source for a debian command upload
tool (dcut) to facilitate uploading .command files to Christian (the
dput maintainer), so this would be a good match.

Kind regards

Thomas
