An awesome feature would be to do this:

   1. Open Repo Browser at HEAD revision
   2. Right click on the folder you wish to copy, select "Copy to..."
   3. Insert the destination URL
   4. There would be new controls added to this dialog to select a revision
   of the source to copy, so there might be a "Show Log" button, a small edit
   control to type in, just like the "Update to revision" dialog.
