This may sound weird, but I personally would prefer it to refresh each
of the configured repos when I start the module manager.  Of course,
there would be some real issues to consider:

- If a website is down, what happens ... I don't want to wait 30 seconds
for a timeout
- Clearly this is very bad for anyone in a persecuted country

But for me, this would simply save me the manual steps of refreshing
(which I do every time)

My $0.02
