I would probably suggest running the script to generated the deltarpms
on a per-package basis rather than a per-repo basis.  The reason for
this is that the script reads in information about *all* the rpms and
deltarpms available, which can take a large amount of time if you're
talking about a full repository.  I don't know enough about our build
system to know where exactly this should go.

At the moment, code is in place so that a delta repo added via
updaterepo will be read via yum-presto without needing the whole concept
of a "separate" presto repository.  If you can simplify (or remove) much
of the code in the PrestoRepository class, that would be brilliant.

On a side note, the presto.xml.gz file is in a form such that it could
easily be merged with updates.xml.gz.  Not sure if that's the route we
want to go.
