If we knew more concretely what you're trying to do, or the exact
nature of the problems you're anticipating, we might be able to
suggest something. From the above, I'm not really seeing the problem,
thus can't suggest a solution.

You can tell whether or not anything under a given repository path
changed between revisions X and Y (i.e., that path could be "/trunk/"
or "/branches/stable_release_1/" or whatever). Does that you?

Cross-repository copying is not supported in Subversion 1.0.
