i think i've already figured out that this approach was a bad idea,
but what i was thinking about was -- start a repo with several
top-level "projects" (i still use the word "projects" in quotes since,
technically, there is no such formal object in SVN unless someone
wants to define it :-)

repo/
  proj1/
    trunk/
    branches/
    tags/
  proj2/
    trunk/
    branches/
    tags/

and so on. but what if one of these "projects" had a subdirectory
that someone might want to branch or tag? could i end up with

proj1/
  trunk/
    dir1/
    dir2/
      trunk/
      branches/
      tags/

and perhaps even more further down.

  after i thought about it a bit more, i realized that this would be a
really bad design, not just because it would get hideously complicated
but because, if dir2/ really deserved to be branched or tagged, it
probably deserves to be its own "project" in the first place.

  anyway, while it's certainly technically possible to do this, i've
convinced myself that it's a bad idea.
