This is almost OT, but given that we will be going to the trouble to
dump / reload the repository and re-check-out all our working copies,
can someone remind me why we have a 'branches' directory? Is it just
to preserve the ability to name a branch 'trunk' or 'tags'? In all
these years I've never figured out why conventional wisdom says that
all branches except trunk need a separate subdir.

(Especially if ^/branches/1.6.x becomes ^/subversion/branches/1.6.x,
it would be nice to shorten that and save some typing.)
