yes, we are and that's wrong.

However, your "outdated" state doesnt *really* help with this, or? AIUI it
will make us stop testing (or rather, stop trying to test) outdated packages,
but it's still not testing *dependend* packages correctly, or?

eg libc6 will be tested in jessie, instead of jessie-security, thats fine. But
wont packages depend on libc in jessie-security not be tested, as libc is in
state "outdated" there?

(also I'd like to show that there are outdated packages in some suites and
that these can be removed…)
