In that case, perhaps /branches/ebcdic/* and /tags/ebcdic/* make the most
sense?

(BTW: We don't enforce partial committer domains via technological means -
it's a scheme which works out pretty well, since then when a partial
committer comes up with a patch for an area of the tree outside their
authorization, a full committer can check it over and give approval by
email. Personally, I think it's also part of a secret conspiracy to tempt
people into becoming sufficiently involved with Subversion to become full
committers :-) )
