There is apt-listbugs apt plugin which fetches bug reports for packages before installation and in case there are critical ones lets you decide what to do. For me, it reduced the apt-get upgrade headaches significantly. It would be nice yet to tell it to wait for a minimal delay (unless this is a security update) to allow for bug reports to flow in. It could be a separate (from listbugs) plugin.
