I added this note, with a bit more detail and a link to this thread,
in r1696722.

I deleted it in r1696742. The note will be useful to anyone who
resurrects the latest (deleted) version.

Other observations:

We first included this script in the 1.8.0 release, and listed it in
the 'CHANGES' file as a "new w/c subtree duplication tool". Oops!

This script is mentioned as a temporary solution in issue #2884,
http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=2884 "Implement
'svn detach' for copying partial working copies".
