I wouldn't want a non-ftpteam user to run such commands if there are
other ways, and your description shows that there are.

You said "it produces a list in heidi/control-suite-format", so well. We
can think about something similar to the transitions. Have a script that
parses the file, checks $wholelotsofstuff, then commits it.
Then have it trigger something on ftpmaster side (ssh trigger, regular
cronjob looking for a defined file, whatever) that imports it (if its valid).
(ssh trigger would also enable release.d.o to be on a different host
than ftpmaster, if that would ever be needed).
