Multi-package repositories are fundamentally incompatible with
`package-vc` (they kind of work, but with various caveats).
So I think we definitely don't want to support them better, but instead
we should discourage them.  If we want to invest efforts in that
direction it should be efforts to make it easier to "re-merge" packages
so as to move away from the problem.
