Sometimes more complicated situations come up. We have one with lftp right now:
This happened because 4.8.0-1 turns out to be broken, and later versions won't
build in Cygwin yet. So I had to promote 4.7.8-1 to test.
I didn't pay close attention to the lftp bug reports, so what I'm saying
may be nonsense. But wouldn't it make more sense to just remove 4.8.0-1
if it's broken? You could still make 4.7.8-1 a test version, leaving a
working 4.7.7-1 as current.
Doing it this way, you wouldn't need anything but the ability to mark a
release as "test".
