Why, yes.
That's the idea.
You should have ability to specify for some packages some criteria, based
on which pkg will choose right repo in multi-repo configuration.
Also, would be just great to have pkg-side ability to select options for
packagename, and make pkg search in all available repos most fit one with
this options.
But of course, this would make sense when there will be more than one
half-empty obsolete repo ;)
While it's not, I'm prefer to use my once set up poudriere, with my options.
