I do not see how this can work. If I have my "trunk" project checked
out, nothing in its history will show that it was copied to create
branch or tags. The only way to see that is to look at the history of
those items, and the only way to know that they even exist is to look
at the entire history of the repository.

Some examples might be nice. Checkout some common open source
projects (for example the Subversion source code) and show what it
looks like.
