How badly would I break things doing this:
 - copy repos/core-i686 to repos/extra-i686
 - manually move the gcc packages that should not be in [core]. 

I suppose that would result in missing package complaints by our cleanup 

What would need done to our current svn repo structure to support this?  
Is having the svn entries only in the $pkgbase folder rather than a 
folder for each package a real problem?
