I was more looking at this angle.  If people are doing updates just
because they are there and they don't really provide the end-users anything
more than a shiny new package, then that would appear to be wasted
resources.  The problem with catching those cases is that there may be
no bugs filed at all because things are still working fine.  But they might
have been working just fine before the update too.

Tricky, methinks.
