If we do that then we should probably return all of the other aux_get
inputs too, including mylist, mytree, and myrepo. Pretty soon it feels
like there's a lot of clutter here. If we leave the burden to the
caller, then the API is simpler, and it's not much of a burden to the
caller anyway.

Yeah it's complicated because of the number of input arguments to
aux_get. You can have the same cpv existing in multiple repos. It's so
much simpler to let the caller manage the mapping from input arguments
to future instance.
