I may know nothing about SVN yet, but it would seem that we should treat 
each component as relatively independent. Releases and versioning freqently 
occur at that level. Needing to get the entire repository is a rare task.

Agreed, we also don't want to go through the acrobatics of maintaining a
jakarta/commons/tags directory with hundreds of subdirectories.  Think
about just how many tags we have in commons and then contemplate a
single directory with every <component_name>-<tag> combination, that's
going to get silly very fast.  Likewise for branches.

Each component in commons proper is a component digester has a trunk, it
gets tagged, and branches independently of latka.
