Yes, but what exactly do you want to have? If you do not want to test
updates for a certain package ever, just remove the package from the
machine. And if the package is already installed and did not cause any
trouble (e.g. because of broken deps or conflicts), then afaik a zero
karma comment is ok.

So would it be enough to have a short-cut for this 0-karma comment with
a predefined text or should this new command make f-e-k create a local
list of updates to ignore?
