Well testing is pretty stable at the moment, its about to be releases as
the next stable.  But the lockdown has mean that testing/sid are only
on 0.11, which is better but not up to date.  

There is also a problem that I have been unable to resolve, which is that
a default installation of the Debian sid package leaves a system on which
the futon test suite fails completely.
