I agree that it should be announced; however, I don't think we should be
telling maintainers to reupload right now.  Sourceful uploads may be very
disruptive of the various ongoing transitions, and I think it's important to
not give maintainers the wrong impression about where this is on the overall
priority list:  switching over to 0.9.8 should be RC for etch, but uploading
right now may hold hundreds of RC bugfixes out of testing.

We also now have the option of doing buildd recompilation-only binNMUs for
library transitions, which are less disruptive than source uploads and
should therefore be preferred whenever the package only needs a rebuild
without source changes.
