Looking at the trac code, we might actually get away w/o introducing new 
tables (or changes to the translator layer) by just leveraging current 
'repository' table.

afaics the table is a simple attribute (name+value) table for each of 
the repositories. So one of the possible solutions for the global 
repositories + soft links would be to simply add another repository 
attribute that would represent a list of products that 'soft link' the 
repository... no database schema/translator changes required... other 
changes would include (at least) modifying 
'trac.versioncontrol.api.DbRepositoryProvider' and 
'trac.versioncontrol.api.RepositoryManager' to properly 'filter' 
repositories based on the environment ...
