If I got it correctly from Walter's later answer (I am cheating
huh ? :-), you get all first class citizen.
Apparently it's the way people have been using BitKeeper too. 
It seems a little messy to me... As I see it, it is almost impossible to
talk about common revisions isn't it ?
People just keep on making merges with other mirrors.
To have a common revision, one has to create a new mirror from the
developer he wants to discuss with for example, to exactly know what the
guy has right ?

You read my mind Kevin :-).
I am definitely willing to hear the way you'd try to set it up. I have
myself vague ideas, and I am sure that Walter will correct us if
something is not correct.
In any case, I think only good can come from the discussion :-)
We could try to document the three scenarios, and add it to the wiki.
I am ready to put together the skeleton of the document from our
discussions and publish that in the wiki.
So please go on and tell us how you see it...

I have been thinking of the aliases...
what about using something close to c++ namespaces aka '::'
::arx -> reference to the arx alias...
Just a thought...

Take care all !
