Having it in /pub/fedora/linux/releases/#/Everything/ (where # is an integer,
not the *.9? stuff) makes it easier for people following development in that
scripts for syncing repositories will be consistant between when you are
on rawhide and when you are on a release. Assuming that fedora-release also
starts using compatible version naming, then you can also consistantly use
$releasever in development as well.

I think the confusion for normal users will be minimal, because normal users
won't be looking at the raw repos in any case.

Livna has recently started doing this. I don't know if they plan to continue
this long term, but the already have a /12 directory.
