It's data in the sense that it's solely composed of user-owned content.
It's metadata in the sense that it's filenames and permissions rather
than file contents (that has been traditionally classified as metadata
by filesystem designers), and has been traditionally stored outside
data/ in hg. Sticking it in data/ would make collisions with user-owned
files named 00manifest a possibility (when not doing long name hashing),
so having a separate namespace seems correct.
Mathematics is the supreme nostalgia of our time.
