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.
