As others have mentioned, of course you can switch the working copy
between the trunk, the branches and tags, using "svn switch."

You can prevent people from checking out the entire repository (and
forcing them to check out either the trunk or a branch or tag they're
interested in) by serving the repository with apache2 instead of
svnserve and installing mod_dontdothat:
