The big problem is going to be that when we point to a repo, there's no
guarantee that there's source in that repo.  In fact, with the way we do
repos, there isn't.  And given that, doing this just within the confines
of livecd-creator is going to be tricky.  

For the general Fedora case, it's a bit of a moot point (images are
created pointing at the pungi'd everything repo which then has its
source put up).  For more general creation, though, I can see where it
could be desired, I just don't see a good general path to get there. :-/
