I would *very strongly* prefer people not to do sponsored binary
uploads, ever. At least with sponsored source uploads it's possible to
audit what the non-developer has done.

The build failure seems to be on i386. If it's really just a transient
failure on the autobuilder (and be very sure that this has been fully
diagnosed before uploading yourself, otherwise we're just setting
ourselves up for problems the next time there's a sourceful upload),
surely we can't possibly have a shortage of developers with i386 systems
to do this build?
