That doesn't solve the lack of notes in bodhi. When bodhi greps them,
they propagate anywhere else so there is no double work to do e.g. in
fedora-easy-karma or some "?PackageKit" and so on and nobody needs to
click throught koji (The builds field contains a search pattern, which
means this would save some traffic in koji, too.).
