Erik: My initial thought is how about you fork or clone the existing
single repo several times, once for each DBD, then in the clones, take
a light sabre and lop off everything but the DBD files and dirs you
want to keep for that one clone, and then setup a new remote (i.e.
github fork) with an appropriate name (e.g. dbd-pg).  That way, you
keep the full history to date, but moving forward, each
properly-renamed clone contains only the DBD it's meant to, or in the
case of DBI, DBI alone.

How about that?
