Since SVN copy operations are so cheap, wouldn't it be simpler to have each
branch as a complete copy of some stable tree, with some isolated work stuck
in? That way, a naive user (such as myself) can just check out a branch -
eg. the system branch - and have a complete boost tree that they can test,
use or develop with.

As it stands, the 'branch' appears to be a subset of boost, whereas I would
have expected a complete 'fork' (albeit a temporary one).
