The Java team uses the same method, but it has IMHO the huge drawback
that "uploaders" sometimes stop paying attention to a package without
notice, and are never unlisted from the Uploaders field [1], until the
package is effectively orphaned. This scheme does not discourage
such "fire-and-forget" behaviour. I think it's a very good idea to have a
single lead Maintainer.
