Wow, this makes a lot of sense. This shouldn't be too hard to
implement and even make backward compatible for a bit. In essence all
we have to do to make it backward compatible is delete the existing
repo directories if it finds them, if we even want to do that. Hell,
we can do that in an install script.

Who wants to whip together a patch for this, which I think we can
safely include in 3.1?
