By testing I meant "start up an old Emacs and try to play a bit with the
feature see if it seems to work".  Of course, if you have a test suite
scripted up and all, that's even better.

"dpkg" was able to install emacs19, emacs20, emacs21, emacs22, emacs23,
emacs24 on my machines, so I haven't had to build them by hand.
