Most of these are just working around the current inability to
mechanically express change interdependencies between projects in
our tooling. You push related changes to multiple projects right now
and there may be only one sequence in which they can be successfully
applied but the result is that all changes besides the next one in
series are going to have negative check results until their turns
come. There's nothing stopping us from using an informational "bug"
to key them on, but creating one every time it's needed might also
come across as makework (or maybe we recheck them all on bug
1021879, but then I worry that would skew our statistics gathering).
