In anaconda, we just use the /etc/yum.repos.d files that the system (in
this case, the fedora-release package) provides.  If a repo is marked as
enabled=1 in its config file, anaconda will enable the repo by default.

If the Everything repo defaulted to enabled, anaconda would pick this up
and when the user checked the Updates repo, we wouldn't hit this
problem.  Of course, enabling Everything by default might come with its
own set of problems.

Alternatively, we could probably come up with some crazy set of repo
dependencies to handle this.  I'd just like to make sure it's not hard
coded into anaconda.
