Except we've been doing it this way since way back in July, and I am
fairly certain either you or Jeremy brought it to my attention which is
why I went ahead and made the change to include betanag in the picture.
I did it fully aware of what was going to happen.

Yes, absolutely.

No, no lists of repos to filter on.  We had that in
installclasses/fedora.py and getting rid of static repo lists was one of
the big changes in my stage2 stuff.

I didn't really like taking the -source or -debuginfo repos out either,
but those seem to be pretty universally shunned anyway so I suppose
there was precedence there.

And I doubt that having rawhide as an option as well is really all that
much safer than things like DVD+updates.  How much testing or work did
we do on that this time around?  Because I know I didn't do very much.
