Several problems with that (at least):
* Mash has no ability/code to tell when something is a 'security
update'. It operates on koji tags. So, I suppose we could make a
f21-security-updates tag for it to operate on, but that would add a
bunch of complexity to an already complex process and we would have
to figure out the movement into and out of that tag, etc.
* Yes, there's a concern about deps. This is also an issue/concern for
the 'urgent updates' repo.
