I think you are mistaken. It might not be appropriate in all
circumstances, but it certainly isn't "wrong" to organize one's
repository this way.

> I'm sure it will eventually hurt performance

Not that we can tell. We have several repositories, organized along
lines that make sense for our business, and each one has multiple
projects in it. One of them has over 300, mostly unrelated, projects
in it. We see no degradation in performance, even for the overseas
folks.

That only matters if the revision number matters with respect to any
given project, which is not the case for it. Rather than thinking of
the revision number as a version of your project, think of it as a
picture of the reposity as of a given time. The version of your
project is a different concept from this.

I don't think "polluting" is the right term. If you organize your
repository along sane lines, no project need interfere, or even
affect, any other project, at any time.

Why?
