It all depends on how testing2extra does it.  /arch/db-extra definitely
won't do it.

Basically, everything from the db repo forward is all the same.  The
difference is how the PKGBUILDs are stored and kept track of.

I don't know how to explain it without getting all wordy.  I'm interested
in what Thomas has to write so that I can clarify things and give more
information as people need to learn more.
