This is also a serious bug.  We need to support updates of arch: all
packages during the stable cycle, both for packages that may require
security updates to arch: any packages built from the same sources and,
less commonly, for arch: all packages that themselves have security
bugs.  While there are probably some arch: all packages that would never
need security updates, I don't think we need to entertain quibbles over
such corner cases given that autobuilding support is still The Right
Thing To Do.
