I would be happy to test more packages, but I am hesitant to open up the
testing repo on my system after having some bad encounters in the past. 

I've also got an arch in virtualbox, but that doesn't really help for
hardware-related stuff like the recent 3945 wifi update.

How do you other devs manage your test packages? Do you use separate test 
machines or are ya just livin' on the edge? Any best practises you'd like
to share?
