how can the suggested mechanism lay out the repository if it doesn't
know the projects? oh, are you saying that by creating '/trunk'
etc. it would be doing a layout for the implicit project at '/'...?
(personally i wouldn't put an implicit project at '/' unless i were
doing one repository per project.)

you know, why don't we install a sample layout in PREFIX/share,
and tell users to import it into each new repository and/or new

of course, they could do this even if we don't install a sample
layout, but if the point is to encourage them to adopt a sane
convention, providing one for them might do the trick. and of
course, they can customize it to their heart's content if they are
so inclined.
