If that logic doesn't end up being too complicated and hard to
maintain, I would certainly like that.

I think that boat has sailed already... If you look, for example, at


you'll see that a lot of the repositories living in those
organizations have pretty generic names, so much so that you can
already spot conflicts at first glance, plus as I said we have
stuff like


in our own organization already, so I wouldn't worry too much about

Personally, what I usually do when cloning such a repository is
rename the clone of $org/$repo to $org-$repo right away and then I
never have to even think about it again. It's really not a big deal.
