While I agree in general, this is *not* a slight against our users. I
would never dare. Seriously, I agree.

However, no user (really) is ever going to install incoming into their
sources to test *every* new upload. They'll just want the newest stuff 6
hours before it's in their mirror.

It'd be fine if they added it, tested, removed, but I really doubt that
this will be the usual behavior.

I could see a *huge* load on this pool for this reason.
