Can I second what Matthew said?
The experimental modules repo sounds great (& I can't wait to see how  
broken our app is for some of those mods!), but access to it should be  
something where the user has to specifically know about it & manually  
add it as an install source?  And hence not suddenly available if the  
user does an InstallMgr->refreshRemoteSourceConfiguration()  ?  :)

Thanks for your hard work  :)
	nic...  :)
