So, if I understand correctly, svn:treeroot should never be set on both
a directory and any of its ancestors. This would make it difficult to
do something that's easy and common with CVS: have some branches that
affect the entire project, and other branches that affect only part of
the project. For example, in NetBSD, some branches affect the entire
"src" tree (userland and kernel), some affect only "src/sys" (kernel),
some affect src + xsrc, and others do something else.
