I didn't say rebuild, I just said re-upload.

I don't expect the package build is reproducible (not least because the 
file timestamps inside the package archive will be different)

You can't upload package archives with the same name but different 
contents, because that would be a really bad idea.

You are only allowed to change .hint files (although this is still 
somewhat a bad idea).
