Depends if the directories are ever intended to be mergable. If they're
not, then both options are equivalent.

eg. customer specific modules, one per directory. You'd copy those to
keep them mergable and make the customer specific changes - if the base
module changes you merge from one to the other.
svn suports this. cvsnt could check that out but couldn't create the
copies, or do the merges. IIRC tfs could do it as well.
