Well, it was you who was taking options from the table.

Sorry for failing to be inspired or inspiring or whatever it was you
were expecting.  Two proposals shot down, here's the third:

Leave everything as is at the upload side, but add two cleanup passes on
the release directory; a first that deletes zero-sized files and a
second that removes empty directories.  That way a maintainer can
"upload" a file that he wants to be deleted.  Then upset will see the
cleaned up release directory and setup.ini won't have to specify tzhe
exact versions of files most of the time.
