That's not a problem, but you'll probably want to set up svnserver or
http access from the start.

The trunk/branches/tags structure doesn't have much to do with
programming environments. They are conventions that relate to different
revisions in the repository. Normally when programming you would only
check out a working copy of one revision under one of these directories.

All the administrator really has to do is create the repo. The rest,
including adding the trunk/branches/tags structural directories can be
done from any client. You just need to decide if you are going to make
separate repos for each project or one repo with a top level directory
for each project, then the trunk/brancehes/tags structure under that. If
you use svnserve, you'll have to mange the authentication/access control
for each repo separately. Depending on how much they have in common,
that can be a good or bad thing. If you use http you can make a top
level directory where you can create multiple repos without much
additional setup.

That shouldn't be a problem.
