copy between repos works and doesn't work

Hi there,

I've just got this bug through the Debian Bug Tracking System, confirmed
it and am, hence, forwarding it here =)

The issue is pretty simple: copying files between two checkouts of
different repositories apparently works at first, and only fails at
commit time. For example:

$ svn cp bar-co/version.py foo-co/
A foo-co/version.py

$ svn commit
Adding version.py
svn: Commit failed (details follow):
svn: Source url 'file:///home/gpastore/svn/bar/version.py' is from
different repository
svn: Your commit message was left in a temporary file:
svn: '/home/gpastore/svn/foo-co/svn-commit.tmp'

It would be really great if copying files from one repository to another
were supported, but in case you don't agree, it should at least throw an
error at the user's face, perhaps even "Sorry, copying between different
repositories is not supported", or whatever.

Please, let me know what you think about it =) And please, if possible,
keep 327281-forwarded@bugs.debian.org in the Cc:, so replies are
archived in the Debian BTS.

Regards,
