Yes, this is the only way I would be able to do it, though its a pretty
nasty thing if you have scripts, creating your repositories on the fly.

Again because noone really understood the problem: I need nested
repositories because without I can not grant granular access rights.

Eg: I have a redmine project called x and a repository called x. I
have access to that repos and some other dudes. Now I need to create a
new subproject that belongs virtually to x called z. To maintain this
connection I want it to be visible within redmine as a subproject to x.
I also want to grant access to that project to different people than I
granted to x. Still I need to maintain the connection to x and hence
the need of creating subrepositories...

Funny noone of you mentioned one damn reason why the force option would
be bad. You just said "Its not like we want it to be" but apart from
that, your argumentation is not present.
