It's already possible for a user to click-install a rpm that adds 
many repo entries without the need for a wizard.  After that 
calling up yumex to install whatever packages are desired is easy.

However, AFAIK there isn't a graphical method to enable and disable 
yum repos.  Adding that feature would help to make things easier and 
safer.  It would then be reasonable for a single rpm to install 
multiple repos, and let the user individually enable them as desired.  
Perhaps any comments included in each repo file could be shown to 
the user as well.
