There's no command line though I suspect something will need to be done 
about that. The problem at the moment is that openid-authentication and 
cli tools don't seem to have any overlap to speak of.

One thing we talked about early on was how the goal was for this to accept
srpms and emit repos. If we come up with a cli you can obviously take 
tarballs and churn out srpms on your own systems - and that allows us to 
keep feature creep out. SRPMS in, REPOS out.
