So in order to get there we need a number of things to happen in
 1. multiple repository support
 2. a way to set up multiple repositories, sanely, in the gui
 3. a nice way to handle conflicts and what not from the interface -
seeing as anaconda has, historically, dealt with consistent repositories
with complete dependency closure. B/c you know the moment there is
multiple repo support people will not just do base+updates but base
