Or, at least to fix the situation now without doing sourceful uploads,
use recompilation NMUs as described in [1]:
 * Get the source as it is in the archive
 * Bump the changelog with a +b1 version (e.g. with dch --bin-nmu)
 * Build the package with "dpkg-buildpackage -A"
 * Rename the .changes file, e.g. from
   Otherwise dak will complain with
	Rejected: haskell-x11_1.4.5-3+b1_amd64.changes: a file with this name already exists in the Done directory.
   because of the amd64 buildd upload.
 * Sign and upload this .changes file.

I just did this with libghc6-x11-doc (sitting in incoming.d.o as we
speak) and it was accepted by dak.
