I also had more than a little pain getting my mind to accept
the concept behind this.

I think the point that may be somewhat hidden to you is that
Project2 is not at revision 784.

The *repository* is at revision 784. You may check out the
latest version of Project2 by checking out that folder in
either revision 342 of the repository or revision 784 of the
repository. (Although, to reduce your pain it would be better
to check out the head revision - unless you need a specific
historical revision).

So, what is the version of your Project2? Whatever you want it
to be - preferably through a copy to the tags folder:

   Project2-AlmostWorks
   Project2-V1.08
   Project2-V1.09-Toxic
   Project2-V1.45-RC1

Etc. Obviously there is little point in tagging every commit. If
you are overly concerned - having observed an unexpected repository
revision jump - a *log* or *blame* will quickly tell you what is going
on.

Having said all that, I often set up separate repositorys for separate
projects when they are wildly unrelated - primarily for ease of backups
and security maintenance. (Hello Enron? Thank you *so* much for SarbOx...)
