I have been avoiding Livna like the plague, because (by your own advice) 
it is incompatible with atrpms.  That package has 11 (11!) dependencies 
from Livna, so I can't just download and install that one package.

Would it be safe to enable Livna, install that package and its 
dependencies, then lock Livna up in its cage again?

This sucks.

This is the biggest reason I really hoped to get F7 working on my 
laptop; they were at least talking about One Repository To Rule Them 
All.  It just makes sense.  Maybe a second one for non-free stuff to 
keep it separate.
