This is a nice idea but now that I think about how few projects
currently check in their public_html in CVS I think it's unlikely they
will care about doing the same in Subversion.  Right now the
Subversion repositories are pretty empty; we could choose to set up
branch, tag, trunk as a default of course.  That wouldn't be bad.  Are
there any "camps" inside the Subversion community that doesn't like
the trunk, tag, branch setup and prefer something else?
