That said, is it finally time to stop recommending the (IMO)
nonsensical layout in which 'trunk' lives away from all the other
branches? Not being too fond of extra typing, I always just put my
branches at the same level as trunk. (This means I can't name a branch
'tags'. Something I've never really wanted to do anyway.) Those who
opt for better organization at the expense of extra typing sometimes do
the opposite, putting trunk inside the branches dir. But either way
makes more sense than pretending trunk is not a branch.
