True ;-) But to assume the audience is __users__ maybe contradicts the
EL in EPEL ;-) It is also why I mentioned 'administrators of all kinds'.

I should probably also mention that these 'administrators' will likely
be supporting their own systems, and thus may want to know what repo a
certain package came from -see comment from earlier message by Greg Swallow:

other support situations that want a repotag.
