I believe there are some problems because we don't want to have too many
versions of the same source package, that's why this is not generalized
and why we try to keep all arches in sync.

But in essence, this proposal is the same as Anthony's with its separate
"m68k-testing" suite ! I don't understand how you can be happy this time
and be unhappy before... ;-)
