More interestingly, keeping it in a single repository makes it easier to merge 
projects, or parts of projects, together, without losing the history.  This 
would be useful when developing packages that may be considered for the 
standard library, but which also need to continue separate releases to 
support older versions of Python.  We've found it very handy to keep multiple 
projects in a single repository for zope.org.
