I don't think you can determine that. What if it's not something that
gets 'run' at all, also?

I'm thinking, bizarrely, of something like eBay's feedback interface:
every time you run a package-management app after installing testing
updates, it has an unobtrusive reminder somewhere that you need to leave
feedback on X packages, but it's up to the user to click the reminder
(or whatever) to initiate the feedback-leaving-process.

If you want to pop up bubbles it could just be done every X days, again
with the 'you need to leave feedback for X packages' text. I'm split on
whether it's a good idea at all, though.
