no - I think it'll be hard to argue why we need 20K pkgs in a single repository. Or hell, why we need 20K pkgs AT ALL.

Dream on!

Not yet counting http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Features/TeXLive

So we are already real close to 20k packages in one repository. Separating them into different repositories doesn't help much anyway (lowers the quadratic overhead a bit, though).

When I am talking about another order of magnitude I mean 100k packages, btw. I would love that your argument would even apply to that number but I am not sure actually...

May be we as upstream devs of the tool chain should just limit the number of packages and packaged files by decree ;)=
