The idea was that the cron job on the server would just call into pulp
tools' sync call to mimic normal sync calls as much as possible. I
didn't want to get into another command line call just for server-side
sync, though it's looking more and more like that's gonna be the solution.

Ya, I don't think it's an ideal solution. More of a hack in the meantime
until I could ask around to what the common solution was. I don't like
the whole two places thing either, it's messy.
