[arch-dev-public] putting "beta" software in [testing]

coreutils-8.0 has been released but flagged beta because of some fairly 
large changes in rm which now uses gnulib's hierarchy traversal (= 
faster) and many changes to gnulib in the area of filesystem 
primitives.  I found the snapshot before this fully usable, and will do 
a "make check/test" to ensure everything is working as it should.

I would like to put it in [testing] _without_ the option of it every 
moving to [core].  I know we do this for some software, but never 
anything so "core" to the system that I know of. 

So...  can I use [testing] for testing in this case?
