Just nitpicking a bit; there is duplicate functionality with regard to
enabling a repository. I'd say just leave the checkbox on the
Repositories list and toss the one in the Edit window (which doesn't
seem to be working anyway).
Also, attached is a trivial patch to make repoman not explode when
ctrl+c'd from the command line.
