Testing a package from experimental uses

apt-get -t experimental install $something

Fetching dependencies from experimental usually gets more tests done in
experimental, but its not the perfect solution, since it may pick up
unneccessary experimental bits.

AFAICT apt isn't a perfect sid+experimental dependency solver (or at
least I don't know the configuration to make it so) for the case that we
have packages a/sid, a/exp, b/sid, b/exp, c/exp and want to install
c/exp which depends on a and b, and the only the combination a/sid +
b/exp + c/exp would result in a successful installation. a/sid + b/sid +
c/exp would fail like a/exp + b/exp + c/exp.
And for piuparts it needs to be automatic, while for myself (with wheezy
up to experimental enabled in sources.list.d with some pinning) I can
use manual dependendy resolution with aptitude :-)
