Better uploading soon. There's always the possibility to try patching
properly and convince ftpmasters, or retire the package insteadi if
too bad. Don't forget that you checked your package only on conventional
archs, if it causes major FTBSes it is better knowing it soon than later.

It would be much more complicated in case of a delayed upload: in a few
the NEW processing will almost stop, so there will be very few hopes
to have it in time.
