easiest way for me: If you can put the package somewhere else, I can inject it 
into REVU.

Uploading via dput to REVU is basically the same as uploading the files of a 
source package via anonymous ftp with the changes file last. However for 
current REVU, all files in the incoming directory are moved to a local 
directory every 10 minutes. Hence resuming won't work if the files have 
already been moved, but I could rewrite that very script to skip 
subdirectories in the ftp incoming directory. Then you create a subdirectory, 
put the files there and resume the ftp-upload if your connection gets reset.

IIRC ia32-libs is fetching the needed libraries via a script. So if you can 
provide me that script and the instructions how to build the source package 
from it, I can also run this on spooky and inject the resulting package as 
your upload into REVU.

If you can think of another/better suited idea for this, I'm sure that can be 
done as well.
