Funny you mention this. I thought about doing exactly this but decided
against it as being redundant. I figured that if folks are going to
create a repository, they would see the link there. I was very
borderline putting the caution on the "creating a repo" page as well,
but decided to put it where the package is *built*, as this will be
when the badness comes out of the test suite.

I actually can go either way, but I lean to leaving it the way it
is as it just seems out of place to provide a link to compare the
types of repos you can create, on a page where you don't create any.

More than anything in the caution, comparing the two types of repo
back-ends, is not so much that it is recommended (where providing the
link you mention would be a good thing), but instead I wanted to show
that there is an *alternative* to the broken DB stuff.

I hope this makes some sense.
