This would need to be carefully handled, because all components are not
equal in terms of blocker bugs. systemd shares the position of anaconda
in being disproportionately subject to them, because *everyone* in the
distro uses it, and bugs in it are much more likely to be showstoppers
due to the role it performs. We probably had just as many blocker bugs
in anaconda for F14 as we did for systemd, or more; it's just the nature
of those particular beasts.
