Sorry, sloppy thinking there. My understanding of the fun processes
that happen after I upload a file is kind of weak, along the lines of:
* I upload a package.
* I get some reassuring automated email from somewhere that it
was the right thing to do.
* A few days later, the package shows up on unstable mirrors.
I should probably read up on it... somewhere.
Anyways, here's the email I got. On second review, I think I might be
able to route around the problem by building different *.changes
files, and only uploading the source tarball in one of them. I hope.
