Ahhh, right... I was working on this issue recently.

The way 'svn cp URL wc' works now is:

  * in the case of a single file, do an RA->get_file(), and examine
    the two repository UUIDs. If they match, schedule the file for
    addition-with-history. Otherwise just schedule for addition.

  * in the case of a directory, check the UUIDs. If they match, then
    do a checkout and schedule the tree for addition-with-history. If
    they don't match, then bail out with SVN_ERR_UNSUPPORTED_FEATURE.
