I guess I don't view the shared revision number as any problem as I
only use the #'s as references to changes people made.

My understanding of it is far from perfect too, but I always saw it as
the cvsroot being the repository root, and then from there you had the
various modules. However how one views this isn't too important since
subversion has no similar concept, it just has a repository root
which then contains the repository directory structure. Any rules to
the structured used is made up entirely by the owner of the
repository. It just seems logical if you want module type features to
follow a directory layout that represents that.

If the downsides to a shared repository such as shared revision number
are a problem for you then it likely would be best to just look into
the other options for remotely creating svn repositories.
