How can we make this more bulletproof ?

It's laughable how often it breaks during a development cycle, and the
problem seems to get worse over time, not better.

The only time rawhide is regularly installable is typically the last
few weeks of a cycle.  We're losing a lot of potential testing due
to this.

One thing that comes to mind is that when a compose breaks, we fix it
up, and take the approach of 'maybe tomorrows will work'.
Perhaps we need to stage things after a compose breakage, so that
new builds can't add new breakage, and we lose a day of new builds
in favour of getting a fixed tree out there over perpetual firefighting.
