will this infrastructure then also be able to do archAllBinNMUs, for
cases when problems in arch:all packages can be fixed by simply
rebuilding without source changes? That would be nice to have.

Although it would come almost for free with source-only-uploads, as then
one can mechanically fetch the latest source, add a changelog entry and
upload the otherwise unmodified source. But still, something even more
automatic is cleaner and less error prone.

In any case, I am looking forward to these changes, and kudos in advance
to anyone implementing them.
