We don't even *have* branches at the user level, do we? Was there going to
be something more than "just copy it somewhere else" ? Hmm. I guess there
are three possibilities:

1) we do nothing. the user explicitly copies.
2) the user thinks they are branching, but underneath we're just copying
3) "something" different happens for a branch

IMO, option (1) is where we ought to head.

We can certainly recommend a "best practices" of a tree that looks like:

  /
    main/
    tags/
    branches/

And let people just work within that "typical" layout.

Cheers,
