I agree as well.  The question though is how to set up the SVN  
repository to support this properly.  I'm more familiar with CVS than  
SVN, I understand the concepts of branches and tags but it is not  
clear to me how this works with SVN.  I need to read up on this.

Preferably people should be able to SVN the BioCocoa core framework  
without getting other stuff; likewise with the applications, they  
should be able to SVN either all the applications or just specific  
ones they are interested in.  Any ideas on how to set up the  
repository?  Would the current repository need to be re-structured to  
support separate applications?

Thinking with my CVS mind, I would consider making the repository  
look something like this:
