One stack per repository appears to be the goldilocks sweet spot of
organization for any DVCS (e.g. git, hg).  We generally try to
organize a stack as a "set of things being co-developed", which is
also the same organization that you generally want to use for a git

There is no requirement to have a 'foo-ros-pkg'.  In many cases, we
assign this name virtually to a collection of stacks.
