Mythweb in particular was split out due to the fact that you can't
checkout *only* mythweb.  The main maintainer/developer for mythweb
expressed concern because he has many checkouts in parallel for A/B
performance testing, etc, and pulling many copies of a 300MB
repository fills disks very quickly.  Now, over time, he may change
his workflow some, but in the mean time, this will make maintaining
mythweb a lot simpler.

The themes were split out as how themes are distributed, etc will be
changing, and it's a large chunk of the repository that doesn't need
to propagate all the time.
