Uh oh. Why?

Maybe I misunderstood how the repository would be used, but I didn't
imagine people checking out just the trunk directory for a project. I
suppose that does work, but with my structure...

libs/
    lib1/
        trunk/
        branches/
    lib2/
        trunk/
        branches/
    lib3/
        trunk/
        branches/

projects/
        project1/
        ...

admin/
     scripts/
     usage/
...

Everyone is likely to need all (most) of the libs. The natural thing (I
thought) would be to have them checkout the libs directory. The
alternative is to check out the trunk for each subdir in libs...(which
could be time consuming). I suppose the trunk/branches/tags dir could
live under libs...and they would just check out libs/trunk. But then why
not put trunk/branches/tags all the way at the root?

I think it's just a mental thing -- I think of the "lib1 project" living
in libs/lib1 -- checking out only "part" of the libs/lib1 directory (ie
just the trunk) somehow feels weird. If I think of the "lib1 project" as
living in libs/lib1/trunk, maybe that would help.
