Yes, this is one reason why it's probably better to wait for acceptance 
into Debian first before uploading anywhere else. NEW delays really 
are rather short these days in my experience so in all but the most 
urgent cases that would be the right thing to do.

Anyway, unless you're proposing changing the version string based on 
target distribution there is going to be confusion regardless IMO. It's 
simpler to just rebuild the source package with an Ubuntu changelog 
entry or wait the couple of days to sync. :-)
