My other thoughts include:
* It's not safe to copy over binaries, only sources, for the reasons
* If we copy sources directly, we still keep the PPA version numbers,
which makes it harder to figure out which packages are from unsupported
PPA's, and which are from our archives (particularly if pkgbinarymangler
gets broken again, and starts mangling ppa, etc).
* Who do we trust to copy random packages across? Do we trust those
with existing upload rights, to their component? What if the licences
are incompatible, and the uploader hasn't noticed? There's no archive
admin group to check for new packages.
