How feasible would it be to support the flat layout at least for
SIG branches targeting c9s, but ideally also supporting it for c8s too?

It would make it much easier for SIGs to build packages based off Fedora
or Stream 9 and keeping them in sync with the original repos.

Happy to lend a hand if this is something that is desirable and we just
need someone to actually do it.
