The pre-graduation discussion ended with the category-B items being 
moved out of the repository.

After talking to Pedro about tarballs in our ext_sources I know that it 
was intentional that even the new category-A jpeg-tarball wasn't put 
there. And there was a good point that the repository itself should not 
contain any of them, even the category-A ones.

Though I like the convenience of having everything needed after the 
checkout, a repository without them would have its benefits too, 
especially if we could only keep cat-A stuff there. Anyway, as I see it 
there are now three options:
1) keeping the mix there as it is
2) add the remaining cat-A tarballs back (i.e. mdds and vigra)
3) remove all the tarballs there and get them during bootstrap from 

The more I think about it the more I like option 3. We can probably 
agree on option 1 being impractical as it is too inconsistent.
