Developers, of course. But developers can easily find their way to the 
repository that they want to see. While users or first-time developers 
might get confused by a hierarchy defined after how work is organized 
rather than the result of that work.

But I get your point... we should definitely not make the hierarchy 
"weird" for developers and contributors. If (4) really is too alien, 
maybe (2) is the right trade-off.
