1.7 is going to support centralised metadata in the root of the
working copy and copying that sort of working copy will continue to
work. 1.7 might also support metadata outside the working copy, if it
does it would be optional and copying that sort of working copy would
be more complicated. In either case I expect that copying a subtree
will also be possible, either via some sort of svn-detach script, or
perhaps an 'svn detach' command.
