 svn cp trunk/project workarea/developer/project

You may want to use 'svn cp URL1 URL2' to avoid two copies of the
source in your working copy. You can use 'svn switch' to switch a
single working copy between the trunk and the branch.

 Record the revision as rb
 Make a bunch of tiny, incremental changes in workarea/developer/project.
 svn merge svn://host/svnroot/workarea/developer/project_at_rb svn://host/svnroot/workarea/developer/project /checked/out/project
 svn rm svn://host/svnroot/workarea/developer/project
 cd /checked/out/project
 svn commit (and give the real log message here.)

Your way will work, but personally I would commit the merge before
deleting the branch.

 If this is done repeatedly, will there be a lot of problems? Will it
 take up excessive amounts of storage space? Does it fit with
 subversion's design? Are there slight changes I could make that would
 make it work better?

No real problems. Most of this is in the book
