Yes. From the book:


  Global Revision Numbers

  Unlike those of many other version control systems, Subversion's revision
  numbers apply to entire trees, not individual files. Each revision number
  selects an entire tree, a particular state of the repository after some
  committed change. Another way to think about it is that revision N represents
  the state of the repository filesystem after the Nth commit. When a
  Subversion user talks about ``revision 5 of foo.c'', they really mean ``foo.c
  as it appears in revision 5.'' Notice that in general, revisions N and M of
  a file do not necessarily differ! Because CVS uses per-file revisions
  numbers, CVS users might want to look at Appendix A, "SVN for CVS Users", for
  more details.

If you want to impart some special significance to the revision number for each
project, you will need to use seperate repositories for each project.
