I am not sure, if a super-repo makes sense, because you will run very likely
into dependency conflicts and multiple choices for one package. This would
lead to lots of questions by the package solver.

However, it would make sense to collect _some_ repos together, IMHO.

We discussed to extend yum repos to support links to other repos as well.
This means you add the amarok4 repo for example and this implicit adds also
the KDE4 repo. When you remove amarok4 repo, the KDE4 repo disappears as
But this would be an extension to the current yum/rpm-md format which needs
to be discussed (and proposed in a valid way) on the yum ml.

I would be happy if someone could spend some time on this issue :)
