Well, can't we automatically forbid to build a package, if the version is higher 
than the existing version in higher Fedora _base_ releases?

This would prevent also that in F12-updates higher versions exist than in 
F13-release, which prevents clean updates sometimes.

Another approach is to put the %{dist} in the epoch :)
