Largely repeating my question from livecd-list -- why does it really
matter that it's a source repo?  source is just another arch, so add all
the repos and set your arches accordingly.  If we add a repo --source
type, then why not repo --arch=i386, etc.

Also, there's nothing that prevents you from having a repo which has
both binary and source packages.  In fact, I'll often do so when just
putting something up for people to play with or test
