That's a good idea for prioritizing needed fixes, but there's something in
the existing reports that that I think mostly covers it.  Most of the
items with a high usage rate in the report you linked tend to have a high
downstream dependency, so if they break, lots of other packages break.

The email report that comes from a bulk build shows a list of the top
packages who break other packages by not building, so we should be able to
get a list of what needs to be done directly from there, and it should
follow the same general pattern as that usage list.
