Case 4.1: What if kernel-module-unionfs-2.6.10_4_FC3-1 is released
one/two days behind kernel-2.6.10-3_FC3? This can happen due to build
errors that first need to get fixed. Or the build system or all that
have access are sleeping. Or simply due due mirroring "problems" when
core/updates/ is already mirrored, but extras/ not yet.
