This is a very good idea.

I'm not sure about this. As it is, any user using Xiphos 3.1 or later
will now automatically get this repo on a refresh. To prevent this,
we'd have to filter out this specific repo as we're refreshing.
Especially with Karmic soon to be released with 3.1, that means there
will be tons of end-users who suddenly have this repo automatically
and there's nothing we can do about it.

Everything else sounds good.
