I might have gotten this wrong, but I'm fairly sure that it's been the
case earlier that packages _moved_ from unstable to testing, meaning
that unstable actually didn't include everything. As I said though, I

Software is not manufactured, it is something you write and publish.
Keep Europe free from software patents, we do not want censorship
by patent law on written works.

Programs should be written for people to read, and only incidentally
for machines to execute.
