It's better to have the packages that are supported (to the extent that
the community provides support) for the distribution version being used
and won't appear in "package-cleanup --orphans".  AIUI, there is no
correspondence between the release numbers of a package in different
Fedora versions, so the higher-release F12 package may lack fixes that
the lower-release F13 package has.

I'm looking forward to using "distro-sync".  Will PackageKit change to
do "distro-sync" instead of "update"?  I think it should.
