We're actually still looking for a good way to handle this. Currently
egg authors must contact one of the "usual suspects" to have them update
or add a location.
I'm just brainstorming here, but maybe we can create a file per user
that they can then maintain themselves, which are automatically
concatenated on the computers where henrietta-cache is running.
Maybe with a pre-commit hook to prevent people from entering invalid
files and egg names that are already "taken".
Or maybe an interface could be made to add and manage eggs.
Not sure yet!
