That'd be great!
Ratt is a tool written by Michael that rebuilds the reverse dependencies
of a package, to check for breakage. But it currently lacks support for
transitive dependencies, which IMO severely limits its usefulness.
What I had in mind was maybe to build a upload queue, which would be a
directory in some server, where some cronjob or something will trigger a
ratt run and based on that decide to discard the package or reupload to
the official incoming queue using dput or something similar.
