I thought of this, but there are bigger problems.
1. scp options are there. You could end up trying to repopkg yourself
into the -l repo
2. Uploading with a commit message:
fix the download URL
would send your upgrades to the 'fix' repository.

So [ $# -ne 1 ] wouldn't really do the full verification job at all.
