Thanks Greg, exactly what I mean.
I *do* like flexibility: life is crazy and you never know what
configuration you'll need in your next project. So it would be good to
preserver the current svn ability to work with any folder as with TTB.
If possible.
BUT: I want svn to reflect the way 99% of programmers work 99% of their time.
If explicit branching can help to simplify merging algorithms, great.
Tagging can prevent newbies (or absent minded pros) from modifying
released code - great!

Vadim.
