That still doesn't address my major concern, which is that each branch
needs to know about all the others. If at some future date, you
introduce a new branch (or, more significantly, a new class of
branches/tags, stored in a new namespace), you have to go back and touch
all your other branches/tags that you might want to compare against it.

My proposal has a single property set on the common parent dir, so when
a new branching structure is introduced, you only have to touch the dir
prop in one place. Can you think of any layout that your proposal
handles which mine doesn't?
