i understand what you're saying but how would you suggest this be
done? not in terms of actual implementation, just in the abstract
sense?

first, i'm hoping that, by typing "view", you're not suggesting that
this would require a GUI of some sort.

having the trunk/tags/branches/etc. appear as normal directories might
seem tacky to you, but it's a *very* simple way to support this. i
get the feeling that, if you tried to make this more transparent, it
would just get way more complicated for little gain.
