IIRC, the repository structure used by Maven (http://www.ibiblio.org/maven/)
has generated much discussion in the past, with the
general concensus being that the flat structure:
. didn't help artifact categorisation
. made it difficult to navigate and locate artifacts

It was an excellent first step, but I think it can be done

I haven't looked at Wagon yet - does it use the existing ibiblio
