Right. So a person could easily set up:

/
  super-project/
    sub-project-1/
    sub-project-2/
    sub-project-3/
      trunk/ ; trunk of sub-project-3
      branches/ ; branches of -3
      tags/ ; tags for -3
  tags/ ; tags for the whole super-project

However you want to arrange it. It is just a set of directories.

Cheers,
