What's the opinion about the flat repository format, where you
just have one directory with Release, Packages, Sources, and
friends and no sub-directories?

Should they be documented as well then? We would then have two
kind of documented repository formats:

	1. Debian-style, with a pool (or similar) and a dists directory
	2. Flat-style, with just one directory

This should cover everything we currently support. Although I don't
know much about how much stuff we support in flat directories WRT
Translation, Contents, and diffs.
