I'd like to second Garrett's suggestion. I would be extremely
interested in reading these approaches and learning from them. Thanks.

 There seems to have been a lot of similar issues recently with people
using svn and what would be considered unconventional project layouts.
Would it be possible for one (or preferrably two or three) people to
write up some different angles of approach for using svn with different
project enviroments, sort of a 'recommend practices in software
engineering'? What I'm thinking of isn't really a mailing list note,
but a well thought out article of best practices for a specific setup of
project file storage and the use of svn with that style of project.
This could relieve a lot of the issues we've seen recently with people
trying to do things that appear (on the surface) to be outside the box
svn but could be solved thru some solid planning. Just a thought.

The problem is that there are no directories under trunk - just several
hundred programs. This is because there's no way to organise them
clearly - they represent one project, and they have different functions,
but they just exist as an amorophous mass of code. Directories only
make sense for specific issues which require changes to a given set of
code.

I've just managed to do a "create folder" operation using the repository
browser in tortoisesvn, but I don't know what that actually did on the
command line. Anyone?
