    I'm not sure where to chime in, but I was just attempting to
    check out one of the Jakarta Commons sub-projects.
    Their directory structure is such that, if you want to checkout
    all of commons, you cant simply checkout trunk/commons, because
    you'll checkout every branch, ever.

    It looks like this:


    Might be easier to manage a specific library, but it's hard on
    the non-commiter that want's to build from source control.

    In any case, I hope you'll consider carefully, the project
    structure when you move away from the tag based system in CVS.
