Being able to quantify what good-behaviour might be ( eg. multilib lines
up etc ) not only allows us to measure how good / bad a repo is, it also
gives the other repos a yardstick to work through in order to become good.

I realise that a good repo will do things that are hard to measure  eg.
delta between upstream release of a patch and when it shows up in repo;
but a large bulk of things we should be able to automate I feel.
