But the only way you're going to know if the debuginfo items are there
is by reading through all of the debuginfo metadata.

so it's a net loss for users who for I'd be willing to wager >95% of the
time do not EVER use debuginfo rpms.

and for the 5% of the time they need them they can simply do:
 yum --enablerepo=base-debug install foo-debuginfo

you're cutting off a lot of packages.

Also - are you -1'ing the whole idea or just the idea as regards
debuginfo packages? We can save a lot of data by pruning out src.rpms.
