Branches are just copies in the repository so having branches or not
shouldn't cause problems. What kind of "grief" was caused before?

I imagine that most people who use Subversion are using branches/copies
somewhere in their repo, and I don't recall any particular complaints
about 1.6.x upgrades.

The latest 1.6 release fixes a number of bugs. If those bugs don't
affect you, I guess there is no compelling reason to upgrade.
