FWIW, I don't think we should necessarily try to support multiple repos
in tlmgr, because of all the implied new complexity to an
already-complex program.  

It seems to me that it would be feasible, if not necessarily ideal, for
people who want to use both repos to run
  tlmgr option repository http://whatever
as needed.  Perhaps as little wrapper/convenience scripts if desired.
In any event, that is what has to be done for the foreseeable future.
Let's let people get some real-life experience with two repos before you
dive (further) into tlmgr hacking.
