You could have an earthquake, too.

If you're having problems rebuilding packages downstream from you, get a 
provenpackager's help.  I've done a few dozen such rebuilds for soname 
changes over the course of F16 alone.

Of course, the accounts system _still_ doesn't have groups, five years 
later, so provenpackager is the big hammer we have.  We could get groups 
any day now, that'd be just fine.
