Command to copy a single file

Dear Developers

I am well satisfied with Tortoise in most ways,
but I wonder why you have not implemented
the svn copy command, apart from the branch-tag version.

I regularly decide to split a file in two, or to duplicate a file,
within a working copy, usually within a single directory.
In this case it both files are logically descendants of the original.
For this purpose I find myself forced to use the command line.

I see that this can be done with the repo-browser,
but that is usually inconvenient.
Furthermore, copying single files within the repository
leads to multiple commits for a single logical action.

A useful refinement would be the ability to copy a group
of files with a systematic change of name,
ee.g. changing the extension
or adding a suffix to the name or extension.

I shall check your archives, but would appreciate a CC if possible.

yours sincerely
