How do you make a reference to that from trunk, then, unless trunk is
actually branches/trunk? Or if you don't make the references
branch-relative, how do you move the project around within a larger
repository, without rewriting all references?

The very fact that we're lobbying to move the repository directly to a
top-level subdir in the ASF repository, instead of going through
incubator/ first, should raise a red flag -- your rationale for that on
general@incubator implies that Subversion doesn't handle moves all that
well at all. (Which is nothing new. :) )
