Marius, how hard would it be to implement the "force" option in
debian/optify? This ignores all heuristics and is the exact opposite
of "none".

I'd argue a rebuild of everything in Extras-testing and Extras into
-testing with a suffix of "-autooptify". That'd mean that people can
upload still newer versions whilst testing/promoting the auto-optified
versions up to Extras.

Ideally, any developer who's package gets changed by maemo-optify-deb
at this point would receive an email telling them there is a new,
auto-optified version in -testing; and how to turn configure the
builder through debian/optify.
