* Upgrade paths! I DON'T want my foo-1.2.3-4.fc13 update to go out before my
foo-1.2.3-4.fc14 update, even if it happens to get karma first.
* Possibility to look at the feedback. E.g. if an update has "-1, deletes
all my e-mail", "+1, can haz noo verzion?" and "+1, didn't test e-mail,
everything else works", I'm NOT going to push the update!
* Because people just make better decisions than software, period.
In fact, IMHO automatic pushing is completely stupid, and the current
