+1 to all of the above

Though I'm in the favor of dropping binaries rather than source-only,
so that later it would be possible to do some sanity checks with
the buildd and DD version of the binary packages (it doesn't have
to be a bit-by-bit compare, but I'm sure we can find some interesting
tests to do, like checking if control files are identical, etc...).

Just a 2 cents idea, since I wont be implementing it,
