In order to use my repo files, I move CentOS ones to backup subfolder, 
so update reinsert them.

Since I already have my solution, I'll not return official *.repo files, 
but I will keep in mind ".rpmnew stuff".

I created my plc-* (mirrors) and plnet-* (addon packages from various 
repos for desktop use and packages compiled by me) release packages for 
various uses that are saved in subfolder(s) and then I developed small 
shell script that makes it possible to switch from one *.repo set to 
another (like from all of my repositories enabled, with official 
disabled, to only official with only my additional repositories).
So if my server is down, I can update and install from official mirrors 
with ease.
