 Yes! ... but good luck.

 No, what you really want is your package manager integration so you can
say:

1. "You searched for FOO", there is version 1-1 in your Fedora release
version 1-2 has been in testing for X days and has Y karma, and version
2-1 is in "rawhide" but is installable with no / Z number of required
packages.

2. I noticed that FOO package just crashed, there is an update available
in testing which fixes these BugZillas:

12234666 - Random crashes when doing XYZ

etc.

...but, again, it doesn't fit into the design/philosophy of PK so it'll
be a huge amount of work.
