How you manage 'branches' is up to you. I don't like the /branches
that the svn repository has. I'm managing my repository so that
each project has at least a 'current' directory, analogous to cvs
HEAD. Releases are copied to /releases/foo/foo-version. 'Branches'
or 'tags' are created as needed along-side 'current'.

Nor here.

If you do that, you're not going to be able to share code between
projects. For example, we have buildtools, doctools, and portability
modules shared between all our projects.

FWIW, i *like* global revision numbers and can't fathom why so many
people dislike or misunderstand them :-/.
