I think the git-filter option as described on the wiki is the best trade off :
  • we keep the history
  • we provide an easy way to see which modules have been migrated
  • it allows us to match the number of repo with the resources to manage them
  • it encourages collaboration
  • it still allows anyone to deploy with packages by generating them based on module version
Leonardo made a very interesting proposal that got lost in the thread, that I believe deserves consideration as a possible alternative to git-filter.

Copying Leonardo:
