Only for fuzzy psychological reasons. Once you get your head around the
concept you realize it doesn't really matter. To uniquely specify
something you must have both a revision number and a path. Whether this
is a path to a different repository, or a different branch in the same
repository doesn't make a difference.

E.g. if you start off with project foo in
        /trunk
everybody can talk about 'foo' revision 123. But then you release foo
1.0 and get
        /branches/1.0
        /trunk
and you must now say "foo /trunk r123" or "foo /branches/1.0 r123".
