 From your descriptions, it looks like you're trying to copy/move files
between two repositories. This is *not* supported at the moment.

I personally cannot answer the "when" question. If you want to try
something, take a look at SVK (search the archives for the link - it's
something like http://svk.elixus.org/ ). This tool works above
Subversion and manages a distributed repository. Might not be exactly
what you're looking for, but it might be a step towards it.

Bye,
François
