That assumes that the only update ever given to a particular package
falls into a single category.  When in fact, during a Fedora release,
one package may see a security update, a bugfix update, a new upstream
version, more bugfix updates, and then another security update (the
kicker, only applies to that new upstream version).

How do you appropriately filter a fresh install?
