The RepoContext encapsulates the list of repositories, as well as some associated state. In particular, it also encapsulates the HttpTransport, which will be initialized on demand and cached thereafter. This is important for two reasons: * For the hackage-security integration: in order to be able to use cabal's own HttpTransport API for the secure repo, we need to have access to that transport when we initialize the repo, but as things stood that was not possible (cabal was initializing repos ahead of time but the transport on demand). * For the integration with the nix-local-branch it is important that the Repo type remains Serializable. By passing RepoContext rather than a list of Repos, we can leave RepoSecure serializable and separately maintain a mapping from cabal's Repo type to hackage-security's (stateful) Repository type.
