The second parameter to co command is the checkout directory. If it is not
provided then it will take the last part of URL in the first parameter.

That is, the dot at the end will NOT create someproj. And without the dot,
it (at least the command line client) should create someproj directory and
checkout everything there.

With the dot, it will checkout everything (trunk, branches and tag in this
case) to the current directory. May be that is what Narendra did? Or may be
he used another client, as Blair mentioned.
