I disagree: the "svn cp URL1 URL2" command is horrible; it's often
impossible to predict the effect unless one has exclusive access to
the repository.

I don't really like either of those, although 2 is better than 1.
svnmucc is designed to combine simple commands together, what's wrong
with "rm URL1 cp URL2 URL1"?
