If gem were all that stood between jack-audio-connection-kit and
testing, it's easy to remove gem from testing, yes.  There are at least
three other packages that would also have to be removed at this point,
however.  If wine, freqtweak, and fluidsynth are all ready to go, and
gem is still not ready, I don't see why we couldn't remove it from
testing (with your permission :) to get the rest in.
