Customer branches

..... Or how to maintain several adaptations of the same code.

This is a problem that I suppose has more to do with general SCM than Subversion, but I am wondering what is the "best practice" regarding maintaining several versions of the "same code" where there are minor changes for different "customers" or "techniques" for that matter, in Subversion.

What I have found to be the easiest and most maintainable solution is to have the specific code extracted to subdirectories, and then let the build/runtime process decide what to use. But since this is such an essential problem I suppose there are many ways to solve this, for instance by using branches. Any good advice on this ?
