The problem with forcing two pipelines through u-t for one 
package is that if the stable package has something that needs 
to go through updates-testing, the new, possibly unstable, 
version shadows the new stable build. Side repos (preferably 
"themed" per sé; KDE updates separate from GNOME packages that 
the same maintainer happens to maintain as well so that users 
don't have to update something they use on the side and can't 
test as well) is the only way to fit a double pipeline for a 
single package through the update system as it stands.
