Looking at this, having such a syntax is fine for highly technical people
for whom seeing $something makes perfect sense, but for other people who
use version control, say to manage documentation, would see $something is
incomprehensible.

What may be useful are two properties called svn:tags and svn:branches.

You would assign the property onto your trunk directory, and it would give
you a relative path to where you might find your tags, or your branches,
eg:

svn:tags ../tags
svn:branches ../branches

You don't necessarily have to put it on the trunk directory. You might do
something like this:

trunk/module
svn:tags ../../tags/module
svn:branches ../../branches/module

Extending this further, you might have an svn:trunk property that tells
you where your trunk lives, and the property might be applied to your tags
directory, or your branches directory.

Regards,
Graham
