I've investigated a bit and have found #221114, where this was planned,
albeit half-hearted. ABI breakage in stable branches ought to be announced
on maintainers-list.

And it should be possible to prepare all packages in CVS and let one
maintainer submit all build jobs.

Further, notifying the extras signers about builds that are expected
to break deps, if not pushed as a complete set, is highly encouraged.
It would not be much work to enhance the pushscript with a bit of code
that excludes build results based on src.rpm names.
