I'm afraid not...

I'm not sure if it would be useful to relocate multiple WCs at once, but it
would be another possible enhancement. In any case, my suggested enhancement
is only about one working copy relocation and that the history there is made
useful and the useless repo browser removed.

Note also that there is a distinction between WC URL (the URL associated with
a WC), repository URL and the path inside the repository. The WC URL consists
of the repository URL and the path inside the repository. Doing a relocation,
_only_ the repository URL changes! Try to change the path, and TSVN will give
you a big red warning. The manpage also says that this is for cases where you
only change the repo URL. So, why present the path inside the repository as
editable in the first place? Instead, just present the repository URL and a
list of recently used repository URLs as history.

I guess then you never moved a server to a different name and then had to
relocate dozens of working copies...
