It's not exactly outside of dak. I think we should sketch out what's
needed post-wheezy. (I.e. it would help us if the uploads accepted would
be machine readable so that we can figure out what exactly, mainly
architecture-wise, entered the archive and when. Given that we won't
have fully architecture independent builds we'd also need to deal with
rejects because the arch:all entered the archive through another
upload. I have a set of notes on that at home.)

I don't think that will happen or we'll have a GR about it. (The
throw-away of binary-only uploads, that is.)
