Addition to documentation on branch/tag? (Or did I miss it in my search:)

A college and I were a little stumped on this, and it took us a while to
figure out why. It may be worth adding to the documentation somewhere,
under gotchya's?

To summarise: If you create a new folder (say in the repo-browser) and
then branch/tag to that newly created folder, then the branch/tag will
also include the name of the directory you selected (as a sub-directory),
rather than the usual process of just copying the files and directories
underneath the selected directory to the new location.

I think I can understand the rational (because the location already
exists and a copy shouldn't overwrite data), but it was tricky to figure
out the reason, because the directory was empty to begin with.

Anyhow, have a nice weekend :)
