what happens when the remote repo is a deb repo?  Or the remote repo is 
just an http collection of files? or if the remote repo is a maven repo? 
etc... http or https doesn't necessarily always mean the remote location 
is a yum based repo.

hence, the requirement for a type.  I'd hesitate to drop type all 
together if we want to make pulp support multiple types of repositories 
in the future but we could *default* to yum for http/https based repos 
but allow for overrides if a type is specified.
