Either of those structures would be fine with me.

My main issue is that even the best-case scenario it will probably be quite
a while before all of this code lands on the main trunk and I want to be
able to produce releases (mirroring your releases) for OS/400 users in the
interim. So I need a structure that has branches for those releases. Both
your suggestions would do that fine, as with mine. I guess my thought was
that confining all of the activity under a single location, whether it be
at the repository root, or under a branches folder, would be easier from an
administrative standpoint. That way I can be authorized to a location, and
if I need to make a branch, I can just do so.
