If I do it in a "normal" source directory, I will have to check out all "tags"
whenever I check out sources -- may be long, disk consuming and unnecessary.

Unfortunately, to use Subversions "cheap cp tag" method, I am *forced* to move
my sources one level deeper, be it called "trunk", "main" or whatever. Which
I do not want.

Hooks get lost in dumps. Hooks stop working when moved to different
architectures. Hooks need to be set up -- I am lazy to do this ;). Hooks may
contain bugs that bring weird behavior. Hooks need to be set up for *every*
new repository -- isn't it wiser to solve a standard problem once and for
ever, and forget it?
