I had a bit different idea:
All the coprs will have  the same URL, but the owner's name and copr name will be variable. That gives us an option to create a single repofile with one URL like
We would then have a plugin that would provide functionality like '--enablecopr bkabrda/foo', that would finalize the above URL and would be able to install packages from that repo.
(Please note that to identify the copr, you need both owner's name and copr name; more users can have equally named coprs.)
