 Build-Depends: foo (>> 4)

 And testing has foo 3.

 I guess you are talking about things like debhelper...  funny, me too.

 Are you proposing that developers should hold back/wait until the
 version with the required features hits testing?  I see only limited

 Packages in testing should be buildable with stuff in testing, but I
 don't think that's what you meant.


 PS: Yes, I know, there is a debhelper (>> 4) in testing.  That's not
     the point.
