You can now automatically create configuration files for Exherbo
repositories that're in ::unavailable and ::unavailable-unofficial. The
steps are:

* Sync

* Upgrade Paludis

* Do 'cave show -t package repository/*', and note how you get special
  packages for repositories that you do not have configured.

* Create /etc/paludis/repositories/repository.conf:

format = repository
config_filename = /etc/paludis/repositories/%{repository_template_name}.conf
config_template = /etc/paludis/repository.template

* Create /etc/paludis/repository.template:

format = %{repository_template_format}
location = /var/db/paludis/repositories/%{repository_template_name}
sync = %{repository_template_sync}

* Do 'cave show -t package repository/*', and note how you now also
  have special packages for repositories you do have configured.

* Do 'cave resolve repository/blah -x' to automatically create a repo
  config file for 'blah' and then sync the newly created repo.
