It made it into testing because there weren't any release critical bugs
against it. This probably means either:

	(a) it didn't cause any security problems or data loss, and doesn't
	    break the whole system

or	(b) nobody who knew about any of the above problems bothered to
	    file a bug of the appropriate severity

If, as the maintainer of a package, you don't think it's suitable for
widescale consumption, it's appropriate to file a "serious" bug against
that package yourself: that way it'll both be ignored by testing, or
it'll get removed before the release if it's already made it in.

Cheers,
