Please let's not do this.  Doing this would mean that after an upload
there would be an even longer period where the archive database says
that sid has version X but in fact it's difficult to find a copy of
version X anywhere because the main archive and mirrors still have

I would like to see the "upload race" (ie, the period of time during
which someone might unwittingly upload over the top of someone else)
fixed, rather than increased.
