This just does not scale for large update groups such as the KDE SC updates.
I think it would also acerbate the already existing "How do I provide
feedback for a library?" problem (because now it'd also affect libraries
included in update groups, not just those filed separately).
I don't understand why we need to make up more and more complicated rules
for updates rather than just killing the whole karma and autokarma business
and having the maintainer READ the update feedback and make an informed (and
unhindered by bureaucracy) decision based on that.
