Sure you can do that with subversion. It's just a little different than with
If you create a repository for each project, then add the following folders
to it with your first import:

Now import your files to /trunk/. That's where you're working on.
If you now create a branch just make a "copy" from trunk
to /branches/branchname/
That's where you can work on too. But if you want to make a "release"
then make a copy to /tags/release-x.x.x/.
Just make sure that you don't commit changes to the tags folder.

check the book for "svn:externals" about that.
