Will that really work as expected? The way we do branching has builds 
effectively move out of the rawhide branch. So that rawhide would end 
up not including packages that hadn't been rebuilt since the last branch 

Maybe if we coupled this with mass rebuilds just after branch along with
a good job of fixing FTBFS, this could be made to work reasonably. But 
that's a lot of effort (and rawhide disruption during the branch) that 
I think we'd have trouble doing.

If we want to get draconain about forcing rawhide builds (which I don't 
feel strongly about), then I think a better route would be enforcing 
rawhide versions being after any versions accepted by bohdi for a package. 
(There are complications here as well, but they are probably managable.)
