upset doesn't like having the same package in multiple locations, so I'm
not sure if the -src packages can be separate.

However, what I did suggest earlier was to have a separate
noarch/release hierarchy for entirely noarch packages, which would
prevent having to upload noarch twice:


I do this with Ports and it works quite well, but then again I'm the
only one uploading there.
