[TSVN] Branching Paths - Bug?

From: Jeremy Swigart <jswigart_at_gmail.com>

I realize cvs2svn is a seperate 'product' but the type of repository it outputs
seems consistant with what people might put together themselves, and the
resulting problem seems like something possibly fixable in tortoise svn.

After converting a repository, the resulting svn repository looks something like
this

svn_repository/
   branches/
      BUG_1/
         module1/
         module2/
      BUG_2/
      ...
      DEV_X/
   tags/
      TAG_X/
      ...
   trunk/
      module1/
      module2/
      ...

The problem with this, is that if someone wanted to make a new branch from
trunk/module1, to remain consistant the destination of the copy would need to be
like /branches/NEW_BUG/module1. This fails though, because NEW_BUG would be a
non-existant folder. and apparently svn-copy is not able to create additional
folders in the process of the copy other than the 1 new branch folder.

Anyone have any ideas to this? Is this something that could be added to tortoise
svn so that it could create a number of new folders for the destination? Or
perhaps I'm just doing something wrong?

Thanks
Jeremy
