It's easy to convert your current repository into this scheme

% svn mkdir http://server/svn/repos/trunk
% svn mv http://server/svn/repos/main.c http://server/svn/repos/trunk
% svn mv http://server/svn/repos/utils http://server/svn/repos/trunk

Now instead of checking-out the repository using

% svn co http://server/svn/repos -d wc

use

% svn co http://server/svn/repos/trunk -d wc

to check-out the trunk

or

% svn co http://server/svn/repos/branches/release-1.0 -d wc

to check-out a branch
