Just to make sure that everyone is on the same page: different packages
do not imply different repositories. 

When packages are in a single repository, though, things work best if
each package has its own subdirectory. I would imagine, for example,
that "scribble-lib", "scribble-doc", and "scribble" would all be
directories in a single repository (referenced by three packages), for

It may even make sense to have certain different packages in a single
repository whether or not we split "-lib" and "-doc" into packages.
