No it would make almost no difference.

We can and should move the bzr branches that do not correspond to a CVS
branch to a subdirectory, so as to clean up the name space.  But this
repository is just for testing, so there's no point wasting time on this
(tho feel free to try it, so to get a feel for how it would work).

Agreed, unless there's a good reason for it.
Saving a tiny portion of a large disk space doesn't seem like
a good reason.
