I tried svncopy.pl did not seem to work with svn 1.6.6.

SmartSVN has a functionality similar to what i am looking for as per this thread:
You should try SmartSVN which optionally converts HEAD-externals to fixed externals when creating tags or branches. You can find this option (External Revisions: (o) Leave as is ( ) Fix all ( ) Fix except below) at the bottom of the Add Tag/Add Branch dialogs.


I really want to use tortoiseSVN -> its much better than anything else out there and I think many would benefit from this feature.
