I agree here - branches are great, but sometimes you want a 'snapshot'
or a 'baseline' that doesn't require a whole new directory in the repo
(especially as the number of branches you have increases, things start
to become less manageable - just the nature of having lots of
things)(for example, we have 300 projects in our repo and we release
very regularly. Creating a branch for each release would be a bit messy
after just a few - not to mention the problems of deciding how to
structure the repo to account for all those projects, do we put branches
at the root and have a huge list of releases that require special naming
conventions, or branch at the project level and miss the
interdependencies between them. All tricky stuff for the branching
mechanism).

And yes, I know this has been gone over many times in the past.
