Then should setup road blocks to using rpm?  To adding repos at all?  To 
writing as root?  The user had taken the step to add something which did NOT 
come with his/her installation.  Adding a NON "supported" repo.  From that 
point on, they're in the "on your own" land, and I'm perfectly happy with 
their system getting eaten alive.  There is a REASON we don't include those 
repos.  Setting up more (easily removable for those that know) roadblocks 
will do nothing more than confuse the user even more, and create more 
hostility toward the 3rd party packagers.
