Fails tests:

+      src.write_err(' PROGRAMMER WARNING: %s\n' % warnmsg)
+  NameError: global name 'src' is not defined

Ugh, no. Let's not pester end users with things they're powerless to

We make a point of having the ui object have no idea that repo objects
exist ("layering"). This runs against that, which makes it a "layering

Instead, it might be friendlier all around to have the peer constuctor
look for ui.baseui itself.

Mathematics is the supreme nostalgia of our time.
