cygport upload command?

Using cygport, I think that packaging has become quite easy now. At least,
once the cygport script is built and working, updating a package to a new
release is as easy as updating the version number in the cygport script,
then running 'cygport ... download all'.
Except for one thing: the upload step. Maintainers still have to go
through the procedure at
https://sourceware.org/cygwin-apps/package-upload.html. Although it's
easier than the old manual upload process, it's still a little tedious and
Yaakov, would you consider adding an 'upload' command to cygport, that
would handle the uploading details? That would take away the last bit of
manual work in a routine package update.
If you don't have the time or interest to add an upload command yourself,
would you consider a patch? I've spent some time looking through cygport
code, and I might have time to give it a try, or maybe someone else would.
