Uh no.  In spot's proposal a failure on a secondary arch would not cause a 
failure on the primary arch.  As in a build in fedora's koji will succeed, be 
imported, and alert secondary arch kojis that they have a build to do.  If 
they fail that build, it's a problem for that arch.  The upstream fedora koji 
continues on without issue, packages go out.

No I didn't.  That's something else entirely, that's all post-build/import and 
into 'what gets pushed out'.  I'm even less happy here as it wouldn't be the 
primary setup's concern to do pushes for the secondary arches.  Secondary 
arches need to do their own pushes, and can decide what versions of packages 
to push.  Obviously they're not going to push non-existant package build.
