Long story short, suppose repository 'foo' has:

  masters = gentoo bar

Now if I do 'layman -a foo', it just fetches foo. What I'd like to achieve is that after adding all requested repositories, layman checks their 'masters' for repositories not in local system and automatically adds them as well.
