And personally I'd prefer not to split the repo.  I'd rather explore the
idea of driver maintainers whose +1 on driver code counts as +2, like we
had/have with incubator.  Splitting the repo brings up some sticky
issues with requirements syncs and such.  I'd like to think that with
only three different drivers we don't need the overhead of managing
separate repos, but maybe I'm being optimistic. :-)

Kind of off topic since that's not what is being proposed here, but two
different people have mentioned it so I wanted to note my preference in
case it comes up again.
