Imagine a repository holding a single product like so:

/ -> r300 = SOME_TAG
        /trunk -> r400 = VERSION_2_1
        /branches
                /project1 -> r100 = VERSION_1_0
                /project2
                /project3 -> r200 = VERSION_2_0

My point was, unless you know exactly where to start looking, how would
you find VERSION_1_0 without starting at / and traverse down the tree?
If you only look in /, /trunk and every top folder underneath /branches,
wouldn't you be forcing that repository layout on every user?

Also, what would the significance of SOME_TAG be?
