This sounds like a recipe for disaster. SBo packages are tested with
dependencies from SBo, this thing would install binaries from elsewhere if
it can find them?

Right now there's a guy on IRC complaining that alienbob's vlc package
segfaults, and it turns out to be because he's using SBo's qt5 instead
of alienbob's. Mixing and matching repos is the cause, in other words.
