  Thomas, just apply your best judgement, taking into account two
  factors, mostly: number of affected arches, and 'heaviness' of your
  package perhaps. If, e.g., at least half of the arches would need
  manual intervention, probably re-uploading is ok.

  OTOH, if the package takes really long to compile and has for example
  been already built in the slowest ones, a request for requeue may be
  worth it.

  Some buildd admin may wish to correct me wrt the above if it's not
  accurate. I'm no buildd person.
