I get that, but if you already have rally/deploy, rally/verify and
rally/benchmark as separate directory trees then why not just git
filter-branch those into new repos and add dedicated review teams to
them? That doesn't involve any "rearchitecting" since they're
already effectively split up and just happen to coexist in one repo
