I haven't reviewed the docs recently, but IIRC all repos with protect=1
are protected from all with protect=0. They are not protected from each
other and ones with protect=0 are not protected from anybody. So my take
is the "base protected" is intended to protect base pkgs from
corruption/destruction by "add ons". All other protection comes from
"enablerepo=" on the command line combined with "disable=" in the repo
definitions... and the loose nut behind the wheel, of course.
Don't trust *my* memory though (bothers me not one whit if you are
screwed! ;-): review the docs and get it right~
