Well, based on the way things are designed now, there cannot be a
single update containing multiple packages.  So a simple solution to
this problem is to make it trivial to submit and run requests on multiple
updates at once.

The web form could be altered to allow any number of builds, which would
then create an individual update for each one with the same bugs/cves/notes.
We could then throw checkboxes next to each update in the list and allow people
to request pushes of multiple updates at once.  Doing this from a command-line
tool would be even easier.  (eg, `bodhi submit <build1>..<buildN>`).

What do you guys think?  Would this be sufficient?
