Right.

There are applications like Cenqua's FishEye repository browser which allow
you to describe your TTB structure so that the notions of "branch" and "tag"
can be applied to particular directories. (See
http://www.cenqua.com/fisheye/doc/latest/admin/svnsymbolic.html)
But I admit that it is a shame that you pretty much *have* to implement
something like this across all similar applications to get that sort of
functionality.
