My crontab trumps the developer's reference (in this case, at least
:).  It was changed due to some people using it for large packages,
which caused time skew when there was more on in the 0-day dir than
what would be transferred in 1 hour.  (Causing DELAYED/3-days to be
effectively treated as DELAYED/4-days)

In the DELAYED dir, yes.

from man dput(1):

       -e, --delayed - Upload to a DELAYED queue, rather than the
       usual Incoming. This takes an argument from 1 to 9.
