Now that testing has stopped to be a moving target (or has'nt it?) a
testing source fix would probably require rebuilding on other archs
instead of letting a fix migrate in. I didn't consider that. I was hoping
we could get an installable archive by rebuilding missing packages with
the current, much improved toolchain.

OTOH, the changes necessary for permitting source uploads to etch-m68k
could be done for testing-m68k as well. But if we can do it for etch
directly, why bother with testing ... OK, if that's the plan, you have me
