You're assuming that it's in the same "repo".  There is no reason that the 
exploaded source couldn't be in another 'repo' in the module subdirectory.  
In fact, when I did a dist-git/hg proof of concept, each "branch" we have 
like FC-6/F-7 were independent repos that happened to be in the same 
directory structure.  On used a simple shell tool to get 
them, 'get-fedora-package <foo>' or something similar.  It would clone <foo>, 
look for a BRANCHES file, parse it and clone the existing branches, + 
common/.  One could go further and in the make file have 'make expload' or 
some such that would clone the exploaded source repo that belongs to the 
module.
