Yeah, a split is good IMO. I always do my checkouts and then configure
and build only specific subdirectories anyway, so I'm effectively doing
this already albeit in an ad-hoc fashion.

The only real benefits of a shared repository is the ease of downstream
packaging and also the "herding cats" issue that comes around release
time if the projects are separated, but I don't think these are concerns
that last over time if the adaptation is made and organisation is well
governed. I think it works OK with xorg for example.
