let me say now, for the record, branding a channel/repo as only for one
arch is a bad bad bad bad bad idea.

you will get into far more trouble here than any other place as pkg
coloring becomes more obvious/prevalent.

Also - what you're describing above appears to be configuration ABOUT a
repository - rather than purely descriptive of a repository.

I think repository information that will be on a server shouldn't have
too much prescriptive information.

also - the mirroring information is tricky b/c most mirrors won't know
about the other ones - mirroring information is probably best left OUT
of the information for any one repository.
