	But that took forecver. The idea is to have testing, not as a
 useful target for people to run, but as a repository of packages that
 may be close enough to what frozen achieved after months and months
 of freezing. Well behaved packages would only be about 10 days old in
 testing, as opposed to months old in the frozen distribution. 

	Testing is a release tool. Not a distribution for random end
 users to run.
