This is a sufficient work around for now, but I would really like to see
more support for this later. As I've been suggesting, a Branch/Tag option in
the repo browser would be better. It would require less jumping around
revisions in the repo browser (I'd have to first switch to HEAD to get the
URL I'm going to copy to, then switch to revision 4 to perform the actual
copy).
