There is a quick and easy way to edit the sources.. Just open Synaptic
and access Software Sources from there. It's the same dialog. Editing
sources isn't something you do every day, so speed isn't an issue.
This is a feature of Synaptic, so why shouldn't you open Synaptic to
access it?

If you don't use Synaptic for package management, then why would you
use it to edit sources? If you only use the commandline tools, then
it's just as easy to do it manually, by adding or removing repos in
