Another thing I find useful in subversion is to develop modules (and
to a lesser extent themes) in their own little subtrees with
tags/branches etc. Then I bring these into Drupal via the
svn:externals property on the Drupal themes and modules directories.
That way you can better reuse work on modules as well as quickly and
easily swapping different versions of modules in and out of different

I've even started bringing in contrib modules the same way so I can
change between branches easily.
