Nice work!

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.
