 As someone who has received a lot of RHSAs, I can say that the update
field gets used when the rpms from the first update have some problem, or
don't actually fix the problem, or there is an additional security problem
fixed in the original package which was left out. Another case would be
the addition of rpms for more systems. Also, when there is an update to an
advisory, this is marked at the id. For example an update to RHSA
2003:279-01 would get the id 2003:279-02 (real example).
 Btw, I think an incremental id would be better than putting the bugzilla
id. That way we have a small number, more easily remembered. Either way,
bugzilla id is still shown in the body of the message.
