I think we'll use the "Architecture" line in the .changes file to check
for a source upload:

        Format: 1.5
        Date: Wed, 29 Oct 1997 14:22:37 -0600
        Source: foo
        Binary: foo
        Architecture: source all

So it's up to dpkg-genchanges to decide, whether it's a source upload or
not. AFAIK, the current check of dpkg-genchanges is correct.

But of course, you can always choose to close a bug yourself, just as you
do it now. This can become necessary if a non-source upload (e.g., from
recompiling the package for another architecture) fixes a bug.
