How about an easy way to continue to be able to upload, even in the case
ftp-master is down?

Feel free to keep your config as is if you don't like the new one hostname, but
dont whine if it stops working, you have been warned. :)

Also, is it really interesting to the average DD where this queue is?
People should be able to upload and expect their packages to end up in
the archive. It really *absolutely* does not matter if that upload goes
straight to ftp-master or to a different host first?!
