Yes, I agree on version-free. svn revisions are our version and I do
hope that we never will need or want a "rewrite from scratch" such
as v3 was, but use gradual improvements instead. Even if we did
a major rewrite that would likely be an extra repo again anyway.

I'm not so sure personally. Anyway, there are many issues to discuss before
we start this massive amount of moving stuff, please leave time for at
least 1-2 weeks discussion of whether it should be done, how it would
be done best, and how users can recover their trees, what developers
have to do to not lose work in their many trees etc. etc.

Yep, that's fine I guess.

No, I don't think so. branches and tags should contain branches of the
same codebase, but v1 is a totally different tree. If you want to get
rid of it in this repo, the best way is probably to move it to its
own v1 repo (while keeping history intact, of course).
