Will this support USB flash drives?

USB key's are up to 32GB these days which makes them much viable choice to use for containing packages even whole repo's than optical media. ( http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/DIRECTORY_SIZES.txt )

and how to make a usb volume into a media repo? ie. it should contain a media.repo file having something like

[InstallMedia]
name=Fedora 11
mediaid=1243980279.769793
metadata_expire=-1
gpgcheck=0
cost=500

and a .disc info file which contains something like

1243980279.769793
Fedora 11
i386
ALL

this is beside having repodata [generated from createrepo]

so what do you think ? does it worth the effort ?
