Agree. But I did not find a better solution. How could a extension
developer be warned his doing something wrong?

peer has no chance to see if a ui object is a global one or inside a
repo when it is not specially marked. And a localrepo should also not
get a global configuration. This is why I moved the check into ui.
Would the function name isglobal be more appropriate?

ui.baseui does not exist. I do not see a possibility to extract the
global ui out of a ui from a repo . The two configurations only exist
inside a repo (as ui and baseui). So when peer gets ui instead of repo,
it is already to late do do anything than warn.
