I don't think this is an issue - it would simply mean everything is
under the same version control hierarchy. And with svn it's Soooooo much
easier to fiddle around with directory structures

Under svn it would be easy to make an "svn copy" of run, network etc
into a branch of live to test this out. Not that this might be a
problem, but: Since we are looking at bioperl-* packages being under the
same svn repository, then then "svn copy's" are cheap for disk space.
