That was the problem I initially thought of with this method, but then I
thought - there's no actual reason we can't have different trains of
updates in a single repository, is there?

We could have:

foo-1.0-2 (conservative bug fix, tagged as such)
foo-2.0-1 (adventurous version upgrade, tagged as such)

within one updates repository, couldn't we? Is there anything that
unavoidably says we can't?
