Hm, we could argue about user interfaces for a long time :-) But I'll
just say that, a minimal UI is better than a layered UI. Sure we could
add another layer (or facet) to the SVN interface as you suggest, but it
just makes the use of SVN that one layer more complicated to use.

Sure, I didn't say his use wasn't effective, just that it doesn't work
for *our* general use. But since you stepped into it, please suggest a
better project organization. After all the point of doing the sandbox
move is to discover problems with how we are doing things.
