Not quite sure how to summarise it... perhaps "separate, but related"
would be the best way. I have my project, mashTape, which in turn can
be extended by having multiple providers (which are built as add-ons
themselves). I'd like to have a providers-repository to place the code
for those add-ons to my add-on. They aren't big enough to warrant their
own mozdev project for each one, but I don't want to lump them into the
main source repo either.
