Having an rpm add a repo file doesn't automatically solve the problem
for 100% of the repos out there. That leaves delegates the repo work
to the package maintainer. All because we don't want to copy Ubuntu's
GOOD ideas, just their BAD ones (like stale software updates vision).

As I said I'm not a programmer or I would do this myself. I don't want
Fedora to keep being behind openSUSE. Worst case scenario we'll see a
fork over the updates vision.
