Right now, I can think of four sources:

 * the default repo
 * the --remote-repo (which really has the same status as the default repo)
 * the explicitly passed in repositories
 * the files in the sources list

If I understand correctly, we discovered that we should put the
explicitly passed in our temporary list of sources (that we sort)
because we want to account for the case where the explicitly passed in
repos are easier to reach (local) than the pre-existing sources.

Why not extend this idea to the default repository and the remote
repository as well?

How would you define remotes with and without authentication?
