A layer of indirection makes sense, as we will likely see more
'repository systems' in the next
year or two, with Java 7 modules, for example. It's highly unlikely that
their developers will
be able to agree on anything, in particular what a repository should
look like, so indirection
lets us support several of them without having to pick favorites.
