I just added several that are on my list. Virtualmin repo is where 
Webmin rpms are located. I avoided giving any links, so who ever decides 
to check it out will have to read their web site and hopefully will 
understand his own actions.

Given that most of the noobs try to compile packages from tar's, my 
approach is actually more benign than what they would do on their own. 
And majority of users will not be interested in Virtualmin anyhow. But I 
will be extra careful about this.

In next month or two I will raise possibility to (in some safe form) add 
Priority lines in yum repo files, and to start a campaign in educating 
CentOS users in safe ways to use existing repositories to avoid 
compilations of packages on their own.
