Btw: I plan to add better support for moving or adding a large number
of packages at the same time. This is needed to make these moves more or
less atomic. For example you'll be able to pipe a list of packages into
db-move: $ cat python-rebuild.txt | db-move - testing extra i686

Ideally we would have some kind of transactions; but that's not easy to
implement. At least due to package pooling db-move became quite cheap as
there is no need to move big pacakges around.
