Personally, I think wide testing is better for software projects. We have a
lot of far less complete software in the archive, and this approach is
precisely how linux achieved its explosive growth.

If we want this to be our standard packaging software for 2.1 we should put it
in unstable now and once frozen is released all developers should be using it.

It should even be possible to have apt ping them all and choose one based on
the rtt, ttl, and a hard coded list of preferences.

I intended to use a US archive for the main components and only use Germany
for the non-us section.
