URL->WC copy means (quoting SVN Book -
"Check out URL into WC, and schedule it for addition."

It's usefull if you perform some non-trivial modification in the repository
structure and you want to do it as a single commit. A possible usecase is
describeg e.g. in

In my particular case, I was trying to create "tag" (I use quotes, because
it's not a typical tag) for a release patch - the "tag" contains just the
files, which were present in the release patch, it does not contain the
whole structure. The method I used was this:
1) Checkout the "tags" folder (non-cecursively)
2) create the my_new_tag folder and necessary directory structure underneath
3) svn add my_new_tag
4) Now do URL->WC copy of files, which should be present in the "tag"
5) Commit the whole stuff

I hope this makes sense.
