My question is whether it has negative effects though.  Name-based
layouts are indeed often very efficient, but might tie things to names
too much.

I tried to use mercurial a long time ago, and noticed it seemed to have
only very poor renaming support -- renames basically seemed to show up
as delete+add (mind you git's not all that great either in that sense).
