It would be nice if there were a link to download the deb (from the
maintainer or upsream, not from NEW). But I'm not sure how that could
be acomplished nicely.

Someone mentioned that checking out the package takes quite some time
so it might be worth investigating something like what the NM team
does for the DAM, screen the packages and create a report for
ftp-master to act upon. A New-Packages team.
