Actually, this brings up an interesting point.
When a new source gets uploaded, it replaces the previous. If several NMUs
occur, each one replaces the former. So, when the real maintainer(s) wake up,
they can only see the most recent NMU that took place.
It'd be nice if NMUs source uploads were auto-archived.
Of course, this would be solved by the idea that people have thrown around:
checking every source upload into revision control.
