Oops, sorry, I just tested this, I was wrong about that one. But that in 
turn means that if the user had only subpackages installed, those will NOT 
be upgraded by the command Bodhi suggested (which only lists the main 
packages) even if there are versioned Requires between the main package and 
the subpackage(s).

(That can be "fixed" by using "install" instead of "update", but then you're 
left with the problem from my original point 3.)

Using the --advisory switch solves this problem nicely.
