I'm not suggesting sticking anything in
The mechanism isn't important. You're talking about client-side smarts
vs server side smarts, but the end result of what's installed on the
system is really the important thing.
What I am suggesting is adding capabilities to apt so that
updates can be delayed for x number of days in the hope that major
problems can be avoided.
But you need to do more than hope if you're going to avoid major
problems. During that x number of delays, major problems may be found,
but they may not be fixed yet. What you're proposing is to go ahead and
get those packages even with known major problems, rather than wait until
those major problems are fixed.
