It is possible, you only have to remember that the file foo.c doesn't have
to be called foo.c,v in the repository. SVN should be able to handle this,
it's just lacking important merging mechanisms.
This is actually a key feature I want to see in a SCM system - the ability
to keep multiple developments within the same repository. I want to pull
other source tress into a branch and compare them with other branches and
merge them into new branches.

I agree, what I was trying to say is that the SCCS format makes a few
things more complex than they had to be.
