As you have found, it is quite possible, but they will share revision
numbers. It is also possible to retrieve log messages for both.

Personal preference, really. I plan to use just one module per repository.

The shared revision number shouldn't be a big problem. The part with the log
messages is mostly just because of problems with the current "log"
functionality. When that gets fixed, you should really only be seeing log
messages that pertain to the file/dir that you're sitting in, which would
mean just one project.

A little of both :-)
