Perhaps an example from our split...

The Pacemaker repo includes the _entire_ Heartbeat history up until the split.
This allows me to build versions of the crm from before the split
(handy if you're doing "hg bisect" to track down which changeset broke

On the other hand, I don't care about old versions of the GUI... so
the GUI repo only has the history of the files specific to the GUI.
This means that you can't build the pre-split versions from there
because the files that used to be in the same repo aren't there

You can of course switch to the Heartbeat repo and build the old GUI
versions from there.

Am I making sense now?
