Could koji provide 'private' buildroots, which are created for a limited
time and in which the override packages are imported? Like this:

a) Packager builds new package of libfoo
b) Packager request buildroot override for libfoo
c) a private koji tag is created which includes the new libfoo and which
   stays valid for a specific time (say, a couple of days, or until the
   packager dismisses it)
d) Packager builds appfoo in the private tag

Noone except the packager would be affected by the override, until
libfoo hits the proper repos.
