Then perhaps I didn't understand your proposal. Can you clarify the following:

a) Testing on the trunk is not as helpful as it should be. My
tests results fluctuate all the time as changes in other libraries
ripple through to my tests.

Proposal:All tests for a particular library should be run against
the latest or next release.

I read it as you don't want to test against trunk and instead you want
to test against the last and the next release.
