The way I was thinking is this.

There would be two tags, rawhide and rawhide-pending.  the rawhide tag
(or whatever it is an alias for) is where things go that have passed
autoqa.  rawhide-pending is where things go that have not yet passed
auto-qa, and is the first stop after a build.

When things land in rawhide-pending an autotest run is ran in two
stages.  One stage just uses what's currently in rawhide.  If it passes,
let it through.  If it fails, do another stage that includes all the
packages in rawhide /and/ rawhide-pending for it's repodata. If the
package passes it will have to be marked as requiring something that is
in -pending and not in rawhide yet.  Insert some magic here.

It isn't going to be perfect, but it'll definitely be better than what
we have now.
