I am also in favor of merging the repositories.  Generally speaking I don't
think mechanical means are the right way to restrict people to operating on
limited parts of the code.  If we don't trust someone enough to obey
procedures on what parts of the code base they can modify, then we shouldn't
be giving them commit access.
