Oh, one question that comes to mind: how does this affect checking for
non-free stuff in past revisions? If 3.1-4 had some non-free files that
get reimplemented for 3.2-1, do we (a) expect the maintainer to do a
no-history upload for 3.2-1; (b) check that this happens somehow; (c) not
worry about it as long as it's only in the history; (d) something else?

Verifying that not just the current tree is DFSG-free, but all the history
is too seems potentially difficult.
