This raises an issue.

Someone releases package foo. I release a package bar that uses foo, 
where foo is grafted at A.B.Foo. Someone else wants to use bar, but they 
have foo grafted at C.D.Foo, because they also have a completely 
unrelated otherfoo grafted at A.B.Foo. Does their use of bar force foo 
to be grafted at the same place I grafted it at?
