Well, single source tree means all source will be in one svn repo.

My understanding is that you can label/tag/branch subdirs - and that a
tag is cheap enough that you can do it for the entire tree.

I think it's better to tag the entire tree - not just the component,
so it's easier to reproduce ( since it has deps, etc ). That seems the
current practice.

I don't think the source structure should be related to release structure.

Things like 'el' or 'jspc' or maybe cluster could chose to release -
either as a jar, or as a .tar.gz or anything else. Or maybe not - that
should be an independent decision from source tree layout or build
