Please note that the distro branches "unstable" and "testing" do not 
hint at the quality of each package but of the distro. Each package 
should be release quality at any time. Software known not to be release 
quality should instead be packaged for "experimental" branch.

...which means we (at the source level at least) would need to support 
multiple branches, which I do not feel ready to do yet.

I still feel that we should not currently package unstable upstream 
releases.  Feel free to keep throwing arguments for the opposite at me
