Dir for latest stable release?

From: Alejandro Forero Cuervo <azul_at_bachue.com>

If I make a directory for a project with the standard layout, —trunk,
branches and tags—, where can I place a directory that will always
contain the latest release? Just like trunk will always contain the
latest development code, I was looking for some standard directory
that will always contain the latest stable release.

This is important in part because I want to make it possible to write
scripts that find the latest stable releases for all the modules
inside a repository (that has multiple projects) without having to add
intelligence to parse version numbers (for the files in the tags
directory) to them. So I would standarize on always using a certain
directory under each project's root.

I'm quite aware that I can use whatever I want, but I'm looking for
suggestions to see if there is some sort of standard practice for
this. I looked at the Version Control with Subversion book but
couldn't find anything on this. branches/stable doesn't look right,
since no development is expected to take place on that "branch".
Although tags/stable would feel slightly better, it doesn't look right
neither, since the contents of that tag would be changing over time
(whenever a new release is made).

What would you recommend?
