This *can* be done, without problem. IPMC would just be responsible for
multiple dev/release areas. Not an issue. We auto-generate ACLs for the
areas, so it may take a little work to figure this out, but it's a Simple
Matter of Programming :-)

With that said, and with my Infra hat on, I'd like to see a thought from
the Legal peeps on whether the incubator/ directory structure layout is a
requirement (to supplement the disclaimers). I know there are distinct
opinions about what/how we host releases on our servers.
