Yes, but it may happen before the bodhi stage, when we get autoqa
working on post-build tests.  This kind of check could happen at SCM
commit time, package build time, or finally bodhi push time.  Seems
reasonable that we'd want to catch it as early as possible, but that
does force people to work on rawhide first, then work on the pending
release which may be under critical time pressure.  Certainly something
to discuss.  Catching it at bodhi time seems too late.
