Yes.  DD_nu can be granted upload rights just like DMs.

I don't think that was a library transition though: I don't see any
SONAME change in that package (but I could have missed one, with all
those binaries…).

So, it kind of sadden me to cut down on peple's happiness, but may I
suggest you go for dd_nu for now, and when you gather some more
packaging experience apply for dd_u?
I need to clarify that dd_nu and dd_u can be seen as comulative for AM
part, as dd_nu asks only P&P and when moving to dd_u only T&S are

What do you think?
