The reason we have CVS divided into several repositories is that we
use it for different departments to version all kinds of files.
Security mandades that we keep these isolated from each other.
Also if one has a monolitic respository there will be such a huge
amount of directories at the top level....

When moving to svn I have split one of the repositories in two to
separate code accessed by consultants from code and other sensitve
files only for our own employees.
