well, I was surprised to uninstallable packages in testing at all, I was of 
the (foolish) impression that the testing migration scripts made sure this 
would not happen at all. Now I've remembered all the force being used to beat 
testing in shape and that we are not there yet.. ;-)

show such packages as available, or?
