It can be. For example, if the main trunk is where development occurs
and a branch is where a particular major release is refined, then it may
be desirable to have a branch of that branch to deal with minor
main trunk: development working toward a stable release 2.0
branch_1: where release 1.x work diverged from 2.x work
branch_1_1: where release 1.1 work diverged from 1.x work
branch_1_1_1: where release 1.1.1 work diverged from 1.1.2 work
branch_1_2: where release 1.2 work diverged from 1.x work
A patch for branch_1_1_1 would probably also go into branch_1_1 and
branch_1_2 and branch_1 and the main trunk. However, it is possible that
the nature of those patches might be different in that the smallest most
conservative change might be used for 1_1_1 while 1_2 might add more
user visible changes and branch_1 or the main trunk might even change
How deeply branches go would be more a matter of your development
process and workflow than anything else.
