As these are new upstream versions that may or may not successfully
build on arm once they've been tried there, we would only push these
into testing if they were needed to fix RC bugs.  Trading a known RC bug
in testing for a possible RC build failure is a fair trade that advances
the release; trading no RC bugs for the possibility of one is not.  As
long as arm is a release candidate, other package updates will have to
wait for the arm buildds to catch up.
