Hmm but we have a different use-case like following;

System has 2 repository;

zangetsu ~ # LC_ALL=C pisi lr 


But user only updates one of them keeping other in older state;

zangetsu ~ # LC_ALL=C pisi ur contrib
* Updating repository: contrib
No signature found for
* Package database updated.

So one can update/and use only selected repository while others in also 
_enabled_ state. 

This is totally different from enabling/disabling the repositories, cause if a 
repository is disabled, PiSi completely ignores that repository/its 
packages/its updates etc.

But if a user only updates specific repository's metadata PiSi can install 
packages from not-updated ones.

Yep, no problem at all for these :)
