there are no branches in subversion. there are directories.
there is no difference in the logfiles, whether dd is /desiredata/pd or 
/trunk/desiredata or whatever.
logs do not interfere. they are bound to an object and not to a file.
2 objects can share part of the log, when object-2 was _copied_ ("svn 
copy") from object-1; they will only share the log to the point when 
there ways departed.
