I concur. While I can see the point that was brought up, I don't think
it will be much of an issue for most users. I think we even discussed
this alternative structure early on during the design phase. The
assumption of one package per repository simplifies the package
manager significantly, which to me justifies the trade-off here. I
could see reconsidering this as we gain more experience with use cases
and generally how people end up using the package manager, but for now
I don't see a need change anything. I doubt that the current model is
what would prevent people from creating packages.
