lookaside makes more logical sense in that the SRPMS are generated from
it.  OTOH, SRPMS are available from http:// whereas you have to know the
 Fedora Cvs song and dance to get access to lookaside.  In either case,
it's less than ideal so I'd much rather have people decide to switch to
hosted than debate whether lookaside or SRPM more accurately describes
how we're doing things now.
