Generally, in the repository we always branch the whole project,
because it doesn't cost any more than branching just a subdir, and you
never know when your changes will creep out of the subdir you started
them in.

But in the working copy, we just `switch' over whatever subdir we need
while we work, so we continue to get trunk changes in other
directories when we update.

(This might want to go into the book somewhere?)
