The main motivation behind this is to enable functionality required

to have multiple branches which correlate with multiple upstream minor
releases. Today, our source branches are tied to the distro release,
via PkgDB. We want to decouple that and use modules to put it all
back together again.
FWIW, I'm super-excited about this change. Thanks for working on it!
