wouldn't it be a nice thing if the build system would notice such
changes and would send out a mail to some list if they happen... so
that you and others could just get automatic notices?
we could use the same for detecting things like "hey this rpm added a
setuid binary" and stuff like that.
I can think of about 40 other tests that I'd like to do in such a
program ;)
