That would likely be an improvement, but have you thought through the
interaction issues? Builds are rarely standalone, so we need to figure
out which builds go with which other builds so they can be tested
together. Or we can test an entire Rawhide push at one time, but in that
case, which package do you block if the automated test fails? All of
them? Pick one at random? Try and write heuristics so AutoQA can figure
out which package to block?
