Yeah, I wanted to say "why not put it under branches/" instead of what
I wrote...

No problem; anyhow, I would have spent half an hour get used to svn,
since you should use it for this project ;)

of course NOT! or better, to move the local working copy on your
filesystem, you can do whatever you want; to move on the remote svn
repository, you have to handle it witn svn client, "svn mv ... ..." is
the way to go; issue a "svn help move" for help.

Fine, maybe a progressive work it's better than a single block before merge

Well, on which version to merge, I think you should reach a consensus
with Chris.
