Well ... actually, having plus lower is a good thing.  BUT, it requires
you to exclude the packages that exist in Base/Updates if you use the
Plus repo.

This is "A GOOD THING" though.  You can install anything in plus that is
not a duplicate package in base/updates without a problem ... but you
can't accidentally install a package that is also in base/updates
without specifically excluding it.
