Correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't essential packages from main supposed to
stay forever in unstable, until they build for all architectures, at which point
it is cuatiously allowed to move to testing?  Why was glibc allowed to slide
down to testing when hppa (assuming that hppa is the only case) didn't build?
