The global revision number is irrelevant; you should not care about
it, nor let it influence your decision to have one repository vs. many
repositories. Here's the FAQ about that:

    http://subversion.tigris.org/project_faq.html#globalrev

This part of the book talks about deciding between one vs. many
repositories:

And this part of the book discusses the svn:externals feature, which is
vaguely similar to CVS 'modules':

HTH.
