But this doesn't mean that firebird2 will be able to enter testing
before Qt; according to how testing works, firebird2 and Qt will have
to enter _together_.

Before or together, does not make a difference. He just wanted to have
transitioned firebird2 packages in unstable so firebird support could
be reenabled back in Qt.
