As a user of the svn command line client, I'd prefer to see this
functionality as "svn copy --replace" than as a new "svn replace"
command. I don't know where it should go in the bindings.

Yes, mucc works for this, but only in the URL-to-URL case. The
proposed "copy --replace" would work for all combinations of
{WC,URL}-to-{WC,URL}. Also, many people don't have mucc installed.
