Our branching is much like perforce's: we do constant-time 'cheap
copies' of directories on the server to create tags and branches.
The subversion repository has no concept of branches or tags: they're
just ordinary directories in the repository.

Read our Design and Handbook documents... they're in the "file
sharing" section of http://subversion.tigris.org.
