Correct.

You can certainly write 'release' scripts that checkout tags from
different repositories, and arranges them into some sort of tree that
you distribute. Is this what you're talking about?

Not really. Just put everything in one repository. People seem to
freak out (at first) that the global revision number is constantly
changing, even if their project doesn't change. It doesn't matter.
Really. You learn to ignore it. Revision numbers are just names of
commits; it has nothing to do with the "version" of any particular
project. Don't be afraid of it.

Take a look at the ASF repository: it has dozens of different projects
in one repository, and it works great.
