Indeed, it feels nice to give people a way to organize their formulas
somehow.  To get started, we can have an option in the command line
such as:

    $ ensemble publish --archive daily

Behind the scenes, this is publishing the formula to
lp:~user/formula/daily:myformula or similar.  The indexing procedure
inside the repository will then make some better use of the metadata,
and enable people to use/search the collection. E.g.:

    $ ensemble deploy lp:~user/daily/myformula
