I like this layout, and my experience so far has been trouble-free. I
switched to this layout for the two projects I have under bzr/lp revision
control, on my laptop yesterday and on my office computer this morning. I
havent seen any disadvantages yet, and it was really simple to set up the
split layout. If you have reservations, maybe you could try backing up and
splitting just one of your project directories. I might follow your lead and
make a repository for each project at some point.
