How about just defining some extra property, that should be set to define some
copy as a branch? Eg. "svn:branch-from" and some source
(repository-root-relative) path, and revision, like this:
  svn:branch-from = /trunk:521

That could be set for existing branches cheaply, and newer clients would do that
automatically - for a "svn branch" command, at least :-)
