A little comment from a bystander: I immediately thought that property
would probably be nice to have in order to use it on the /tags and
/branches dirs (and maybe / itself), as accidently checking out all
there is, is a common beginners error.

Just thought I mentioned a use case which doesn't question the
repository layout. (And yes, I realize that use case by itself doesn't
justify the feature at all.)
