I'm ... confused. You're asking us how you can differentiate tags and
branches in a directory scheme that you've designed specifically to avoid
differentiating tags and branches? This is madness.

If you truly wish to avoid differentiation of this sort, just omit the
"branches" and "tags" container directories and make all these items (tags,
branches, and the trunk -- which is just a special sort of branch after all)
siblings:

   /
      trunk # ah... good ol' trunk.
      issue-1414-dev # perhaps a branch -- but is it?
      release-1.0 # looks kinda tag-ish -- but is it?
      chicken-wire-and-vasoline # *shrug* beats me!
