testing2x will not work. you need to explicitely tell db-move that
it's an any arch package, e.g:

/arch/db-move festival-rablpc16k testing extra any

testing2x only runs:
$(dirname $0)/db-move "${pkg}" "testing" "${repo}" "${_arch}"

where _arch is either i686 or x86_64.  Until any support is add to it,
testing2x will fail.
