As you note PBR and other OpenStack tooling has the assumption that
everything in a git repo is related and is a single "thing".  This
could be changed, thus far it really has been easier to break out
common components.  We have to work around this in other areas too,
such as maintaining multiple tox job definitions rather than using a
single top-level tox.ini.

I think we need to break out more parts from the existing repos but
within the same sub-project teams.  I would start with either major
pieces (inventory) or the small dependencies (tsconfig,
fm-common/fm-core) and clients (cgts-client).  I have done an
experiment with cgts-client that took a couple of hours and is even
mostly automated and maintains the git history.
