I don't know why I didn't think about koji.  That should be more than
good enough for testing repos.  I do feel that the main updates repos
should have at least the latest two updates available.  I don't know
that as a regular user I would feel confident knowing what the working
version I had was before my update.  As a user installing packages
from testing I should be familiar with koji.  As a normal user, I
don't know that we can expect that.
