One application per repository.
Most of your development at any one time should only touch a single
application. If that is not the case, then you should probably consider
making these inter-dependent applications a single application.
Working on a single application at a time brings a lot of advantages:
* You can work on them separately
* You do not have to worry about keeping compatibility with the rest
of the system all the time, you can use tags for that and only focus on
compatibility when you update your release
* You will be able to test/benchmark/dialyze/.. applications
individually instead of testing only your system (but doing both is
important); you can also do it with apps/* layout, but it's too easy not to
* It's easier to reason about a smaller unit than "the whole system"
