Actually I think you get what you want by default here.  If the build fails on 
the secondary arch, that build isn't /imported/ on the secondary arch, and 
thus when querying the secondary arch collection on the secondary arch koji, 
you'll get the last successful build.  Maybe not, I'm not entirely sure how 
the 'latest package' routines for repo creation are going to be handled 
between downstream and upstream kojis.  There is certainly value in both 
approaches, and I think you're right, if the secondary arch koji just doesn't 
import the build that failed, it just has the previously built one, then it 
might be easier for that secondary arch to keep up, even if they have to do 
some rebuilding to really "catch up".
