May I make a small suggestion for usability? Having just reflashed my 
770 to the lastest official firmware, then spent a fair amount of time 
reenabling the various repositories, could you consider making an 
installable .deb that sets up each repository?

e.g. if there is a repository bob.example.com/, how about having a .deb 
that adds the appropriate line to /etc/apt/sources.list for 
bob.example.com - that way, if I want to add a repository, I can just 
click on a link in the browser, the package adding the repo gets 
downloaded and handed off to the application installer, and there you 
are - the repository has been added, no typing of the repo data.

Bonus points for adding the GPG keys automatically.
