15 I dunno, if testing packages that one maintains is as simple as
16 reconfiguring a package, testing, and switching back then I don't think
17 it's unreasonable to ask us to test our own packages. We're supposed to
18 do that already, and for packages whose dependencies aren't 100% hashed
19 out, it can help us figure out what the real deps are.
