I don't think in this case, it's something to worry about. As Blair
mentioned, tags are 'just there' no one is really referencing them,
AFAIK. And I don't think anyone is going to get too confused if we
just tack a .0 on 15 directory names.

The only possible confusion might be if some one had a wc they
checked out from a tag that was X.YY which changes to X.YY.0, and
they needed to check out that same tag to another location or
something. In which case, using the URL they initially had will
fail, they'll do an svn ls URL, and hopefully make the mental leap
that they need to add a .0 :)

(this is where symlinks in a repo would be really neat. You could
have a single tree with several different names :)
