I have several repositories of my own, and I support several more, for
various companies that I work for.  None of them have the branches & tags at
the top level of the repo, because the repo actually contains many separate
independent projects.  You should stick your branches & tags dir at whatever
levels of the tree you'd be interested in branching & tagging.

If you did the -tbt switch, it's just a lazy way to eliminate a single "svn
mkdir" after the "svnadmin create."  Not really worth while, imho.  If you
can remember the "-tbt" then you can remember the "svn mkdir."
