Yes, this is best for representing the structure in a filesystem.

I'm not really sure. Real-life example:

Project devel-tools contains cflow, dwarves, exmap packages. It also
contains subprojects devel:tools:building, devel:tools:compiler,
devel:tools:scm. If you checkout the whole tree, you'll end with this


Even if the policy (package name != subproject name) is not broken, it
is very hard to tell if compiler is subproject or package. You have to
go two levels deeper to tell that (dir/.osc).

I suppose maintainer of that project knows, what is a subproject of the
project (and I considered these large complicated subprojects structure in OBS
harmful too ;-)), so it's not a big problem in most of cases. Novice will have
to look at .osc, or we can write something like osc lsprojects, which lists
the projects from current directory.
