Yes, it is not a "slight" but a "huge" misunderstanding.

I saw the caller of get_repo(url, alias) doing a

    'refs/hg/%s' % alias

immediately after the call, and somehow assumed that the proposal
would result in stuffing .shared to the "alias", which is not the
case.  The hg/$name directories may be used to store Hg repositories
for 'alias' that is passed by the caller, but hg/.shared thing you
guys were discussing is internal to get_repo() implementation and
there won't be refs/hg/.shared created because of this change.
