I'm trying to work out why package *section* matters at all.  Package name
is a bit odd, too, but including the section in there is just totally whack. 
Upload priority would be nice to sort by, but I think the queue needs to be
as FIFO as possible for fairness and "principle of least surprise" sake.

Now I have this urge to go and make surgery on w-b.
