You can fix that with a 1.5 client but since not everyone has one then that 
does need to move underneath Tomcat to stop the issue. I'll move it to 
tomcat/current-svn15 but if you have a better suggestion for a name then 
feel free to rename it.

As a side note, I expect that eventually we will make svn1.5 the minimum 
client version but we are a way off that point yet.

Yeah, 3.3.x is on the list to move to the archive area. This should be a 
whole lot easier with the 1.5 client and shouldn't result in the mass of 
commit messages we got when I archived 5.0.x

Given that the new dirs are for svn1.5, naming it current-svn15 seems 
suitably descriptive to me. Better suggestions welcome.
