Real persistent ones? Maybe 2 or 3. But hundreds in the course of
testing Subversion or ViewCVS, I'm sure.

Aware -- yes. Understand -- yes. Use -- never.

Aware -- yes. Understand -- yes. Anticipated use -- never.

I'm not fond, at all, of either of these template mechanisms, but
since we as a community have established that we'd like to politically
push a recommended (/trunk, /tags, /branches) layout, I'd be +1 on a
single flag to svnadmin create, '--auto-layout', which created those
directories. I don't care about making custom layouts automatically
available, but I *do* care about encouraging folks to use the one
layout which we are trying to promote as a sort of de facto standard.
