Given that Bodhi updates bugzilla reports when updates are pushed, 
maybe it can be made to update them with karma and comments too?

If there were PK integration, there could be lots of interesting ways 
to allow the user to interact with the update system, such as 
single-click karma reporting back to bodhi, displaying the karma on 
updates to the user so they can choose whether to update that package 
or not, setting a preference that says somthing like "wait until karma 
gets to +3 before defaulting the checkbox to enabled to update this 
package".
