It's not a decision we have to make immediately...because it just so
happens that your devteam now includes the author of reposurgeon, which
can slice and dice git repositories with the greatest of ease.
When and if we decide to break the repo up into port-specific repos,
it can not only be done but the daughter repos will retain their history.
