Isn't the goal to maximize the ratio of potential benefit to potential
detriment with each update?  How do we help individual maintainers get
a good handle on that ratio? And how do we guage if there is a problem
in some area in the repository with regard to this goal?
It's pretty difficult to make a relative comparison from one software
stack to another for different components and know whose doing better
at keeping the ratio maximized.
