The basic philosophy here does sound workable and appealing to me as both a user
and tester, and also fits with the "cutting edge" Fedora model, and seems to me
might get a significant number of users more aware of how to test packages
(presumably there would be some warning that 'this is a package still being
tested and may not work as expected' or somesuch (like the 'eats babies' warning
for rawhide)?
