The reference nodes are a different concept. While they might be able to do
inter-repository "modules", they won't be able to do intra-repos modules.
If/when those nodes arrive, the client-side modules would remain.

This approach is also a great way to handle modules. It is very user
approachable/editable (heck, even under revision control), and can easily be
handled entirely on the client side. No funky FS tricks.

Low dev bar. High functionality. Parity with CVS (maybe better).

All in the issue.

Vetoes require a specific technical problem; preferably with solutions for
rectifying that problem. Is there something technically wrong with this
approach?
