There's a small technical issue on how to give DMs the ability to
upload dcut files somewhere the DELAYED queue can get at them, but if
this is a requirement, we can fix that.  (CGI form to upload them or
something like that.)

The queue also don't have a concept of ACLs today, so that'd need to
be changed slightly for DMs.

DM cannot do NMUs, so I don't see why DM should upload to DELAYED,
so this is a minor point, and probably it is simpler to forbid DELAYED
to DM.
