"head" is the same as TRUNK -- that is, the source that you check out by
default, as opposed to source from some particular branch.

In CVS, you'd use `cvs co -r REV` to check out a particular
branch/revision; if you don't specify `-r REV`, you get TRUNK.
Subversion is subtly different; it uses URLs for everything. So this:
svn co http://mono.myrealbox.com/source/trunk/mod_mono
will checkout `mcs' head, while this:
svn co http://mono.myrealbox.com/source/branches/mono-1-1-13/mod_mono
will checkout the mono-1-1-13 branch.
Notice that the only difference between the two commands is the URL
("trunk" vs. "branches/mono-1-1-13"), as opposed to CVS which would need
a `-r REV` argument.
So anonymous checkout out has nothing to do with it. What matters is
which URL you checkout from.
