No, I don't think trying to track down all the loose ends of a transition
this large, and then turning my inbox into a 24x7 request line for upload
exceptions, is an improvement over the current process.  For that matter, I
doubt anyone would have thought to block gcc-4.0 from being uploaded anyway,
so the mess would be the same, but with more busy work for the release

Debian Developer                   to set it on, and I can move the world.
