+1, same reason, cept for the pain of sometimes a breakage that hate
dealing with.

What are general thoughts on how this would work?  You get the testing
updates, install/update, run them, then click on some GUI and enter
comments to be submitted to Bodhi?

And I guess (not to get too detailed into something not created yet)
those updates would stay polluted in the GUI until you make a comment or
remove it yourself (this would help show what you have left to comment
on so you can remember)?
