Beginner questions: repository versus project, import command, and others

I'm really confused by Subversion.

The Subversion documentation says:

$ svnadmin create /usr/local/svn/newrepos
$ svn import mytree file:///usr/local/svn/newrepos/some/project \
             -m "Initial import"

1. Why would someone put their repository under ./svn ? e.g. (as
above) /usr/local/svn/newrepos. Why not make the repository simply

2. Do I need to execute the 'svnadmin create' command each time I
start a new development project? OR do I just need to execute the 'svn
import' command and put that new project under my first repository?

3. Before I perform the import am I supposed to manually create the
project directory and the trunk, branches, and tags directories?

4. When I do the import do I import into /usr/local/svn/project/trunk?
OR just /usr/local/svn/project?

Thanks for your help everyone!
