What I do with a current web project is to keep most general development
in /trunk, and maintain a /branches/stable branch to contain tested
(mostly) code that should be "live".

Occasionally I'll create a development branch for some more invasive
changes to the code that I'd like to apply to the trunk atomically (as a
merge), which I can then apply to the stable tree after making sure it
doesn't mangle any minor changes I've made in the trunk since creating
the branch.

I only create a tag for a "landmark" revision that I feel needs to stand
out in some way.
