Little question about directory copies

Sorry to distract people from their fs work, but this has been bugging
me for a while.

Suppose I'm ready to make a release branch for a very large project.
I go to my working directory and run:

        svn branch foo foo-1.7
        svi ci

(or maybe I just use "svn cp"; I don't know whether the current plan
is to have two separate operations or not). In the repository, after
the commit, foo and foo-1.7 will point to the same node-revision, and
future changes will result in all the cool copy-on-write stuff talked
about in the structure document.

My question is, what happens in the working directory when I run the
"svn branch" command?
