the kde-sig has similar pain-points doing mass updates.  Having a list of 
pkgs to build (seems done on google docs in your case already, good), and 
having your own koji tag/target does seem to simplify matters a bunch.  Then 
it's relatively easy to compose a bodhi update from the output from:
koji list-tagged --latest f16-gnome
for example.
