Note that you can append the series name to any Launchpad upload path to
override the .changes file. eg. /ubuntu/oneiric will upload to oneiric
in the primary archive, /~wgrant/ppa/ubuntu/oneiric to oneiric in my PPA.

So you *can* use an identical .changes file, if you really want to.

This is deliberately not well documented, and is somewhat discouraged.
