Now THAT sounds like the idea I have been looking for, it allows me to add my 
automagic sources there, without ever having to TOUCH the real slapt-getrc, 
and ergo when my wrapper is in control of the thing, the normal sources won't 
interfere and when something else like say gslapt is running they won't be 
impacted either.

I like this one, thanks.
