I disagree here, since building from testing means not duplicating all the job
done in tier-1 testing. My project called for a per-arch override, uploading
directly to arch-unstable, in case of stals and such.
Also, building from testing makes synchronizing with tier-1 testing for an
arch stable release easier.
