In light of the fact that upstream's optional repo's are specific to the 
variant, I dont think we have any options ourselves. If we were to make 
a list of things that are in all <varient>-options repo's we'd be left 
with a very small list, and we'd need to put the rest into the base distro.

Which then really closes the door on having components in a seperate 
repo, with the base being light. We're going to need to drop everything 
into base and consider doing parallel builds. at the moment, thats the 

or am I missing something ?
