Hey Doug,
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.
