One approach is to make a product-level entry that has your
build/packaging scripts and a set of external references to pull in all
of the components. During development you may want to let these
reference the head of the projects trunk or branch work, but for
releases you would point them to tag copies of each component. This
level can also have its own trunk/branch/tag structure for simultaneous
   versions, and it doesn't really matter if the components live in the
same repository or not.
