Right, it does not force the latest, only the version that is installed on
the machine it runs on. But isn't the effect essentially the same, since most
people/robots that build for unstable will likely have farily recent library
If whatever library versions are present at the time of building are defined
as the minimum requirements, doesn't that mean that packages which are in
stable today would not even be accepted into testing if they were rebuilt?
