The proposal is to add  the 'location_href' attribute to
the  repo_key_fields, uniqueness constraint within a repository version, so
2 packages with the same NEVRA but different location can be present in one
RPM package is still uniquely identified in Pulp by NEVRA +  checksum(aka
pkgId) + checksum type.
