The reason isn't obvious to me. It is a branch as far as subversion
is concerned except perhaps for the convention of naming an upper
directory 'branches'. Or a tag if you don't intend to do additional
changes to that copy. And if you think in terms of 'release'
branches/tags it even makes sense for your usage.
