The 'svn cp' command behaves just like the unix 'cp' command. People
have criticized this, because they think 'svn cp' should give warnings
about the target already existing. But I don't remember anyone ever
complaining about the command not auto-creating directories.

It sounds like what you really want is '-p' switch to the copy
command, which would behave like 'mkdir -p' on Unix.
