Seth, is it feasible to provide an API to mergerepo that we could use
createrepo has an api. repomerge should be relatively easy to use the
same way since repomerge is really just a combination script using
createrepo and yum's interfaces.
when I have the script cleaned up more I'll make sure you can import it
