I don't follow this reasoning. Twisted totally depends on Python, should
Twisted go in the Python SVN repository? Should Python go in the Twisted
SVN repository?

No, the Debian package would be named python-epsilon, and have a
dependency on the python-twisted package.

It seems to me that separate projects should be, well, separate. It's
really not hard to check out code from different svn repositories; you
can even have svn do it automatically for you with svn:externals and so
on. What compelling benefits does squashing everything together in one
monolithic jumble have? It just seems more confusing to me.
