I agree, Robert's suggestion might be good for TortoiseSVN.

There's a sort of sliding scale in terms of how much "UI sugar coating"
a client puts around svn concepts, and it's very much a matter of

The commandline client has no coating at all: it expects users to
understand that a project root usually has three subdirectories, and
that branches and tags are just directories created via 'svn copy'.
TortoiseSVN already does a bit more handholding: unlike the
commandline client, it has explicit "branch" and "tag". So in that
same spirit, it might be nice to see commands to "create a project
root" or "checkout from a project root" (and grab project/trunk/
