Nowadays there are better alternatives to uploading to unstable for
archive wide testing IMHO. Uploading to experimental is a good thing to
have some initial testing on many architectures, though I would go for a
rebuild of the whole archive for testing things like this for all
packages... before uploading to unstable.
I do hope you will think about this next time.
