This touches exactly on the point for why I don't want to include
priorities by default. To make it useful for repos that provide newer
software than what exists in base/updates (php, httpd, libvirt,
whatever), you're automatically working against priorities. It doesn't
matter if it's for a local repository or for a SIG.
