I might be very wrong on this, you are right, and this is mainly a
personal perception. Perhaps a more heavy user (I'm thinking maybe of
Joeyh?) can comment. 

This structure would mean little for handling the _complete_ set of
packages. It would, however, help us make sure our checkout of an
arbitrary subset of packages is complete (following Joey's message -
I'm answering to him as well), yes, I don't have any other way of
having the complete checkout, which I like having - Maybe I should
just give up on that? Or we should keep the current directory as it

In an nutshell: Doing a 'svn up' in packages simply takes forever. I'm
not a patient guy. I'd like to be able to make a smaller 'svn up', and
the obvious way for me is at least to split the repository in smaller
