Hello all,

This has worked well for quite some time for most packages these days.
It's indeed much easier to review packages which are already in the
queue, and it is done either way to check if the uploaded patch
matches the attached one.

Also, since the uploads are still checked, there is no real
encouragement to upload something half-broken. I estimate that I
reject about 5% of all uploads, which is a very good ratio. Also,
rejecting from the queue is a trivial operation.

So my +1 on this one.
