I agree with this, but by the same token, the use suggested by Matej
seems against the purpose of updates-testing, as does the original idea
in this thread (push some Xorg changes we'd never be happy about putting
in stable into it). I also agree with Kevin - maybe we don't need to
*disallow* updates sitting in -testing for a long time, but updates
sitting there for a long time is an indication of potential issues and
it should be flagged for tracking.
