I don't have a strong opinion either way here, but I note that it is 
generally possible to move things between repos relatively easily 
without losing history e.g. using git subtree[1], so I don't think that 
it is necessary to make a decision on this before moving to git.

With that in mind, I suggest doing the move with the repository 
structure more or less as it is today and then later merging the repos 
if we decide that is desirable.
