I assume the idea is to upload binary+source and not a seperate upload
for binary and a seperate upload for source. Those people who want to
upload a checkinstalled binary and a dh-make templated source would need
to know how to build a *_i386.changes file for such uploads. And I hope
such people would use their knowledge to build a proper package than
doing such things.
