ohh, come on. In unstable we have currently about 800 override files
(and we haven't even implemented overrides for source packages!)
_I_ don't want to maintain these files and check for every new upload
if the overrides are still needed. Adding additional redirections
normally don't provides better accuracy... Let's just don't do it, okay?
