Well, button makes PK so that at least it is not useless for Rawhide, but 
still -- today I have 123 packages to be updated and two of them (from 
TheRepositoryWhichShallNotBeNamed) are barring like four of them from 
upgrade (and BTW, none of them is greyed out). Clicking manually on 115 
or so other packages which have no problems is kind of bad.

I am not sure I understand fundamental problems with checkboxes, but 
could we at least make the logic opposite -- what about a button "Don't 
try to update this package"?
