Revision numbers in themselves aren't that significant, but having totally
different projects in the same directory is wrong, I'm sure it will
eventually hurt performance (you end up with x times the number of changes
to your repos, with x being the number of projects inside your repository),
you end up with tags and branches from one project polluting all your
projects, and then, if a project has to be moved to a different area, now
you need to somehow split your repository.

Now, I've tried to put several SVNParentPath inside one <Location
xxx></Location>, and that does not seem to work. Do you need to use only one
SVNParentPath, or only one SVNPath per <Location> statements, or did I get
something wrong ?
