I wonder if we can preserve a package's karma if it only gets a  
package upgrade. Lets say you only have a little typo in your app, you  
fix that, and upload a new package with a new package version. Since  
you didn't upload a new _app_ version, your karma is preserved.

This way we allow devs to make small changes and keep karma, make big  
changes and bump your app version and start over at zero.

Does that sound worthwhile and implementable?
