from svncopy.pl README:

Overview
========

This script performs an svn copy command. It allows extra processing to get
around the following limitations of svn copy:

  svn:externals definitions are (in Subversion 1.0 and 1.1 at least) absolute
  paths. This means that an svn copy used as a branch or tag operation on a
  tree with embedded svn:externals will not do what is expected. The
  svn:externals will still point at the original location and will not be
  pinned down.

[... and much more!]

wow. Someone did read my mind even before i thought about this.
You wizards of the subverground!

Thanks Dale, I didn't know about svncopy.pl.

But (even without testing at all, just from the README) it doesn't seem
like working between across diferent repositories. (I'll check that from
a machine with perl installed)
