Yeah, I've done that in some setups but I was talking about purifying the 
_repos_ above; that setting doesn't affect them, e.g. it doesn't make the 
metadata to be downloaded any smaller.  (As said, not that I think it's a big 
general issue at all, but just that I'd personally have nothing against if it 
would be "fixed" nevertheless.)
