In this case you added positive karma to your own update on 2012-03-30,
days before starting this thread about Sheepdog being broken. Given
that we're at F17 Beta, an ABI breaking change should not have been
scheduled for push to stable while you knew the Sheepdog issue was
not resolved. IMHO this is an abuse of the update process.
