None of us have used Perforce really, and SVN is attempting to
(mostly) emulate CVS's model, at least in the user interface.
However, because of the way our repository stores trees, a
Perforce-using acquaintance of ours has told us that our
"branches-are-just-subdirs" model is very similar to Perforce.
