We moved from CVS to SVN last year and have have 1 repository. I
think the main thing to consider is the administration - if you're
likely to want different hook scripts, the you may want separate
repositories. Of course your hook scripts could be configured so they
only pay attention to the parts of the repository they're interested
in, but you may find this more trouble than its worth. For example,
scmbug (which we use to integrate svn and bugzilla) has an installer
that assumes it should integrate every commit - again, of course you
can change this, but depending on how dirty you want to get your hands
this may be something you don't want to do.

cheers,
dim
