We're getting things in place where this could be automated.

Because things in -testing go away or get replaced with something else.
This can cause a problem if your package built against something in
testing, then you pushed stable and the -testing package went away.
This mirrors what happens in RHEL land where pending errata doesn't go
into buildroots unless otherwise requested.  We could toy with letting
updates-testing builds go into buildroots, but we'd have to add a whole
lot more logic to the push system that would prevent something from
being pushed to -stable unless everything it built against is also being
pushed to stable or has already been pushed.

All it takes is code.
