Does it make things any easier to have Client / Server repos that
packages get moved to only when this sort of thing happens?  By
default all packages go into the current "common" repo and when
problems like this arise the move to the specific repo.  At least in
that case it isn't necessary to duplicate everything in both repos.
Only the one offs.

Its messy no matter how you do it. :-/
