Increasing the rate at which new packages flow into unstable is NOT
something that should be a priority when we're trying to get the RC bug
count down in preparation of a release.  Show me that there are enough
people working on release-critical issues for sarge, which requires no
imprimatur from the DPL, before you start throwing packages that have never
even been tested by their maintainer at us faster than we already get them.
