A generic dav client won't do versioning. DAV has no versioning, you
need the DeltaV extensions for that. And there are no deltaV clients
out there.

Your only option is to use svn's "autoversioning" feature. Read about
it at svnbook.red-bean.com, Appendix D.

Yes, because in svn, branches & tags are just directories.

But I'm not sure if the win32 webfolders client will issue a COPY when
you duplicate a directory via windows explorer.
