So, the right thing is to fix the testing-proposed-update mechanism to
make that happen, is it not ? What is actually the problem in having the
testing script applied to testing-proposed-updates also, and have it
being autobuilt ? It is only for emergency fixes like those above, and
the packages there should be built against testing anyway. This would
also be helpfull for debian-installer stuff.
