/me somehow missed those tools

Nice, thx for the pointer.

$ rpm -q rpmdevtools --changelog | grep -A 1 rpmsodiff
- Include rpmsodiff and dependencies (rpmargs, rpmelfsym, rpmfile,

I always imagined there should be a dedicated system that just grabs
freshly build rpms and does those checks.

But yeah, likely still a lot of work.
