If you don't anticipate wanting to use branches and/or tags, then by all
means, don't create a trunk folder if you don't want one. You can
always add them in later on if you change your mind.

(The only real purpose for the 'trunk' folder is to separate the
contents from the 'branches'/'tags' folders. You definitely don't want
to have branches/tag folders within your "trunk" (whatever you call it)
-- otherwise you'll be forced to checkout every single branch/tag each
time, which is just a pain in the butt.)
