One thing we could do. But I'm hesitant to do it.

We could ask if, as an option for adding a package into the ts as an
update it takes an optional header of the package it is updating.

I'm not sure how ugly this would be for rpm but it would allow for the
flexibility we'd need/want here.

is Paul on this list? any ideas?
