Default hardy-updates for universe not enabled in some cases?

It looks like that user upgraded from Ubuntu 7.04 or earlier. The
installer mistakenly didn't add sources.list lines for universe and
multiverse -updates before that:

apt-setup (1:0.21ubuntu2) gutsy; urgency=low

* If either restricted or multiverse is enabled, add commented-out lines
for the commercial component (LP: #118002).
* Add -updates for universe and multiverse, if enabled.

Michael/Lars, perhaps this is something that update-manager and
system-cleaner should check for?

Think this would fit into both. Update-manager should, I think, do check
for this when preparing sources.list for a new release, and
system-cleaner should check for sources.list inconsistencies every time.

Sure, I can add code for this. So far update-manager does relatively
little fiddling with the sources.list (beside the fiddling it needs to
do). The reason is that its hard to tell if the user disabled some
bits deliberately or not.

But I think if I can add a check that enables -updates for all
components if it is enabled for at least one component.

Cheers,
Michael
