Thanks Eric. Additionally, I added 'db-move' which is a generalization
of Pierre's testing2extra script. db-move, testing2extra, and
testing2core are all in /arch-new if you want to test them.

As you can see from the commits ML, I moved openssh this way (I didn't
know that was still in testing, my fault there)
