After some discussion on -release, I would like to see this implemented.
Dpkg is a rather important bit of software in Debian, and having any
problems reach testing would be a bad thing(tm)[0].

Thus, extensive testing should occur before uploads. I strongly
reccomend the use of experimental rather than unstable for this :)
