While this is a good idea in general, if there is some good reason to 
make new revisions (i.e. for uploading different versions to mentors, 
for local use before a package gets into debian, etc) this can be 
easily handled with -sa (to always upload source) and -v (to get all 
necessary changelog entries) to dpkg-genchanges.
