I second this option.

Also, I'd suggest to consider if it would be reasonable to flatten the
directories layout:


instead of keeping Providers deep in the structure, under:

Personally, I keep FDO stuff following the proposed structure and
it works for me better than checkouting provider into the fdocore
tree, to Providers directory.

Also, I can confirm branching will be as easy as it's now.
Simply, in SVN branches or tags can be created for any
subtree of the repo.
