3) Official PPAs directly linked to package names. so e.g. if I want
to upgrade to the latest version of abiword, I can go to
and choose from various possible versions maybe "latest_2.4.x",
"latest_stable" and "latest_development" etc. In principle this could
break the system, but
  - we could have user reviews saying whether the new version worked
for them, if they had difficulty downgrading etc.
  - We could limit these PPAs to contain changes from upstream only
(or changes approved by Ubuntu Developers) and so we would at least
know that these wouldn't add malware to the system.

This feature could be linked into the Ubuntu Software Store.
