In your structure, you cannot make a tag or branch of /myProject. When
you do, it will also copy every other branch and tag that previously
existed because they are beneath the /myProject namespace.

Usually the name of the root folder of a project does not matter. If you
have:

Checking out the contents of /myProject to a folder will result in the
exact same local structure as checking out the contents of
/myProject/trunk. In other words, there is no trunk folder locally.

If I have a "Project" that is comprised of several "sub-projects" then I
use this structure.

/Project/trunk/Project1
/Project/trunk/Project2
/Project/trunk/Project3

etc...
