Fully agreed.  But we're wanting to use the same sort of interface for
editing as adding (because there's lots of win there).  And given
_that_, we don't want to necessarily hide what the defaults are.

to go the route you're saying, but just look and auto-expand if a mirror
list or gpg key is set.
