Maybe I'm misunderstanding you, but this sounds as though it won't work.
  If you have committed changes on both the branch and the trunk and you
haven't merged them at the time you do the delete, they won't be merged
when you recreate the branch, whether you copy from the trunk or the
deleted branch.
