I use bodhi every day.  I have yet to find all it's limitations.  There are
known limitations that aren't even documented.  I think it's a bit far
reaching to say that maintainers should just know, when there is no good way
for them to know without either reading the code or excessive use.

That's decent advice, but it will not catch quite a number of the problems
that we see come up.
