you do not need a wc just for creating the branches/tags, you can do
that in the repository (using TSVNs repo browser)

and then check out a wc from changes/Alan directly

My proposal in svn-user assumed you wanted to reuse a wc of the trunc
you allready had.

If I remember correctly, TSVNs commit dialog provides you with a list
of changed files, but also shows unversioned files, that is: the files
you added with your modifications.
If in the course of your modification you also deleted/renames files,
that is something TSVN can't do for you.

There is a command line script of some sort (I think loaddirs.py or
something like that) that could do such guesswork, but for using it
only once ...
