we've got precidence here in the addons repo that was shipped in past
versions, where content built but not shipped clearly upstream was

at the very least, content coming from srpms that have a corrosponding
binary in the other 3 repos should ship by default.

how much content are we talking about that comes from srpms that dont
have a single component that ships in the main 3 repos ?

Also, i would leave this repo enabled. there isnt anything conflicting
with the distro rpms here is there ?
