Except that in testing happens at the wrong time.  The problem with
testing is that, by the time we realize that a package won't build on
all platforms, other developers have already built and uploaded packages
that depend on this buggy package.  This prevents otherwise bug-free
packages from entering testing unnecessarily.

This provides a simple baseline that a package must meet before it can
be depended upon by other packages.
