We already treat bugs in the preupgrade package itself as several people
have suggested in this thread: they aren't considered to block spins.

However, the preupgrade process involves other packages, particularly
anaconda. For 17 Beta we've had to fix rather a lot of bugs in anaconda
which broke preupgrade. This thread is mostly concerned with that issue.
