So, wait a second. Why does the split pose all that problem? If m-c and 
c-c would check out into the same directory, mailnews/ and mail/ it 
would be on the same level as browser/, no? Why can't you do that? 
Should be just a matter of git or hg tricks, a one-time work.

(The old layout was a good idea as long as there still has a XULRunner 
around.)
