There is no actual "branch" concept in Subversion, a branch is just a
naming convention for a copy of a directory.

For all practical purposes, there isn't really a limit as far as the
number of branches/copies you can make with Subversion (as far as I
can tell from discussion here). Each time you commit a copy it'll
increment the revision #. There are projects with over 500K revisions,
and on most systems the revision number is a 32-bit integer.
