Comment(by duncan):

 Replying to [comment:5 ross]:

 > It will rebuild package versions that are already installed?

 Exactly. It rebuilds them against different versions of their
 dependencies, so that the overall installation plan (graph) is consistent.
 It tries where possible to reuse existing installed package instances.

 > Probably saves trouble in the long run, though it would be annoying if
 the rebuild failed.

 Hopefully it would not matter since you wouldn't be uploading the results
 of dependent package rebuilds, just the single target package you're
 interested in.
