As an uploader for celery, kombu, and python-amqp, I see no problem myself. I can't speak for other packages, and definitely I can't speak for packages not under DPMT. For now, I would suggest creating a debian/experimental branch, switching to gbp pq (as using non-standard branch names is easier with gbp pq), and then continuing. I have done this already for the python-mkdocs package. If you need any help, let me know.
