Yes, I am fully aware how that works. I am a very active porter :).

And you are missing an important part. The next time a new version
of rustc gets upload, the package can end up on the wrong buildd
and fail to build from source meaning that testing migration will
be stuck. This is what my original mail was about.
Unless you actively blacklist rustc from being built on the affected
buildds through the buildds local configuration file, your workaround
will not work.
