This is what I've done.

The idea of one single DB that contains ALL the code I own just didn't
sit well. :-)

After all, the URL remains identical given a single SVN root, compared
to a single repository with the root containing one subdirectory for
each project.

I figured when I was *completely* convinced that SVN was foolproof I
could merge them all into a single repository without changing access
points. That assumes, of course, that such tools will become available
in the future.

The only downside I've noticed, and it does not currently actually
affect me, was the need to maintain users and passwords for each
