I think it may be good to allow the sponsor to decide when the DM is
allowed to make uploads without a sponsor when he/she is satisfied that
the DM knows what he's doing with the package. e.g. simple packages may
just need a single upload. More complicated packages (e.g. libraries,
if the DM doesn't have previous experience packaging libraries) may need
a bit more oversight by the sponsor before he/she is satisfied.

We could leave this up to ftp-master. e.g. for a simple SONAME bump,
they can accept the package. For more complicated package
reorganizations, they can reject with a request for a sponsor.
