Subversion does have any "concept" of a project. Within a repository there
are folders. Each folder could considered be a separate project; that
depends on the meaning you assign it and how you use it.

one repository. You already have it divided into folders for the server
piece, the client piece, the editor, etc. You will be able to check out any
portion of the system that you want, by specifying the folder.

Assuming you might release a new version of the server code without having
to change the client code, and vise versa, I suggest the following

Definitely. Each project lives in a separate folder.
