VULab 0.5 - SVN Branch? Tag?

This week I really need to get the 0.5b version of VULab isolated in  
the svn so I can start using the trunk for this new framework, but I  
am unsure as to what to recommend in terms of file structure.

The Situation
- Long Version: VULab 0.5 development is being put on hiatus and may  
potentially be stopped forever. We are doing this because are  
developing a radically different version of VULab using the CakePHP  
framework at its core. Because the sites are so dramatically  
different, patching from 0.5 to 0.6 seems impossible and an import is  
what I believe to be the best course of action.
- Short Version: I need to get the 0.6 framework - CakePHP - into the  
SVN but I want to preserve the VULab 0.5 in SVN as well.

The Problem
- VULab 0.5 is not going to be changed until further notice, BUT it  
may be in the future - this makes me learn away from tagging the  
- VULab 0.6 is nothing like the original version and will be an import  
rather then a patch. I understand a branch as making a copy of the  
trunk (or a release) and developing it independently of the version in  
the trunk.

Do we tag? Do we branch?

I know we are all busy so I don't want to stir up too much  
conversation but, a general consensus from those more experienced with  
svn would be awesome!
