My last proposal had a way to deal with these, but I didn't write it
up. The comments I wrote mentioned that the value of
svnp:parallel-root should always be ".", but didn't explain further.
To create a branch of only a portion of the project, say
"subdir1/subdir2", you would set the svnp:parallel-root property's
value to "subdir1/subdir2"; that could then be inserted/removed as
needed.
