If we had a way to, even manually, parse fresh packages into finer
grains than by comp group, we could have these emails list new packages
by interest.  Maybe not every interest would have something new this
week, but perhaps there's links to all the not-new interests at the
bottom.

I think the flashy icon thing is annoying for me, but works for many.
If that flashy icon was yum (up2date-panel-widget?) so you could grab
the game immediately and, hey, why not get that kernel security update
while you are at it.
