Since you won't develop any new features on those branches, I propose a
somewhat different naming scheme; either:

    /branches/ebcdic-trunk
    /branches/ebcdic-1.1.x

or

    /ebcdic/trunk
    /ebcdic/1.1.x

i.e., put the ebcdic port on the top level alongside /trunk, /tags and
/branches. If anyone thinks this is too radical, remember that the
repository structure is here to serve us, not the other way around.
