Ah, thanks for the explanation, I was used to doing things the
CVS way where branches live forever and you just have to live
with the clutter.

I've removed all my CMF and Zope branches from SVN,
except the slinkp-configure_changes branch which I
had completely forgotten about.*

Also I've added a note about the practice of removing old
branches to the SVN FAQ at 

* configure on the slinkp-configure_changes branch
allows multiple "preferred" versions of Python,
for the case when a bugfix release to the stable branch
of Python comes out and we don't want to inappropriately
advise someone to downgrade it.  See discussion at 
... in which I was apparently supposed to merge this change to
2.7, 2.8 and the trunk, and I never did. Duh.
I'm now inclined to leave 2.7 alone since it seems a bit unlikely that
we'll have future bugfix releases to *both* zope 2.7 and python 2.3.
But I'd still like to land this change on the trunk and 2_8 branches.

Of course configure has changed a lot since that branch,
so I may have to start from scratch ... anyway, I'll go sort it out now.
