we should define some rules that ban the seperator from package names
aswell. and that will be hard. in that regard ":" was good. as projects
barely use it in their names, unlike "_", "-" or "+". (the plus sign is
forbidden by the buildserivce atm anyway.)

i wonder if we just should force


and stuff all projects without an explicit namespace into "unsorted" or
something like that. then we wouldnt need some special namespace marker

anyway i think if rsync fells over the 2nd ":" in the url it is
definitely a sign for a broken url parser in rsync.
