Surely you won't actually "svnadmin create trunk". The recommended
naming scheme of trunk / branches / tags is meant to be made (using
"svn mkdir") inside a repository, and not three individual
repositories trunk / branches / tags. The purpose of the layout is
that you can "svn cp" between them, and you can only do that within a
single repository, not between multiple repositories.

With Subversion 1.1.x and earlier, the default repository format was
BDB. As of 1.2.0 and continuing to the present, the default is FSFS.
Many people including myself prefer FSFS repositories. To convert,
you would need to dump on the old server and load on the new server.
