:) Subversion is a file system. About all regular rules to work with
filesystem is applied, caveats too.

Ryan probably gave you easier way to do this, but actual choice depends on
the size of repository. If it's small enough, you can follow his advice
without a second thought.

It's up to you, if you do not want me to be pedantic :)
For me, the "project" is a collection of stuff that works together for
intended purpose, minus shared libraries, each of which could be separate
project or a part of larger framework.
