To be honest, I've always thought that if people are doing that, we have
bigger problems anyways. I don't really like the "throw away debs" idea
personally (it seems a complete waste of bandwidth, time and effort),
and would much rather go to source-only uploads. The opinions within
the ftpteam vary on this though, so it's something we're going to have
to figure out. Of course, this is orthogonal to having buildd support
for .all debs which needs discussing with the buildd team.
