why making all this mess?
to satisfy the fundamentalists, i would suggest, that you can specify
in pacman.conf, what licences you agree to and what licences you do
not agree to. then pacman will know what is "allowed" to be
whenever a new licence comes up (with a new pkg) pacman would ask: do
you agree to licence XYZ? licence XYZ can be found
under /path/to/licence if you want to read it. Y/N? and then pacman
would add this result to pacman.conf
do not separate repositories acording to licences... that would make
it quite messy.
