More stupid questions

I feel like a roofing contractor who's been called in to shingle a
house whose foundation is just being poured. (-: Where are the walls?
How many gables? Are you cutting down that tree? Except software
developers don't know how to draw blueprints yet. It seems like it's
WAY too early to start cvs2svn, and besides, there's a lot of project
history that I don't understand yet.

Anyway, here are some more questions.

1. Who creates version numbers? (I.e., which code module?)
   It must be somewhere on the server side.
2. Will it be possible to run subversion in local mode without
   installing Apache? (I sure hope so.)

3. What does a subversion branch name look like? An odd-length
   numeric tuple like RCS? (-: Who creates branch names, the user or
   the software? If it's the software, which code module? Can you
   put a new name onto an existing branch? (I sure hope so.)

4. How closely will the svn command's args resemble the cvs command's?
   Will it support branch/merge in full generality? What would the
   command line(s) for the last example in svn-design section 2.6,
   "A:10 = (A:1-10,B:5,B:9)", look like?
