Stellation does support multiple projects per repos, including
overlapping projects. I can't imagine that with the link architecture
that the same thing would be any problem for svn.

You don't generally directly look at the repository pathnames in a
system like this. It's an internal thing. You access branches by
project/branch/version. And tags are essentially branches with only one
version.
