Because of what and how the /X/ release symlinks work - that url style
isnt going to work either. It might beed to be a
vault.centos.org/centos/6-sources/ to include the entire distro stuff.
Which in turn might just be a meta repo, with urls pointing to the
'usual and normal' paths.

Let me look at whats involved to make that happen and we can get a
testing repo online; I then need to get something similar up for the
yum-security infra to work against the binary rpms side of things ( but
is a bigger fish to fry )
