Yes, that's something we should certainly contemplate medium-term.
upset doesn't like having the same package in multiple locations, so I'm
not sure if the -src packages can be separate.
?? This doesn't seem to address what I was suggesting.
Right now, the srce packages for x86 and x86_64 *have* to be separate, although they are identical. And the simple ftp server doesn't even support the ln (hard link) option that sftp and lftp provide, much to my annoyance when I first uploaded a new package myself and wanted to optimise the procedure, considering my slow upload link (of a typical asymmetric subscriber line, maybe you have different access in your country and don't care...).

However, what I did suggest earlier was to have a separate
noarch/release hierarchy for entirely noarch packages, which would
prevent having to upload noarch twice:

I do this with Ports and it works quite well, but then again I'm the
only one uploading there.
