Well, yes, Ken it does hurt.
It hurts every time you launch yast to install something because it
has to connect to those repos.

In 9.3 you could be in and out of yast to add a new package very
quickly. Now I dread loading yast because of the time it takes
just too say "Hi there" to all the repos.

Add to that the dodgy mirrors that come and go based on
the phases of the moon, and you soon learn to keep your
repo list to a minimum.
