This is not exactly what I am trying to do...


Say I have the following


and then do

svn cp svn://host_A/repos/trunk/common_ancestor

since this is a "cheap" activity it is ideal as project/common_ancestor
receives all the data from trunk/common_ancestor without the overhead.

so what I would like is for project/common_ancestor to be able to
reside on host_B like so

svn cp svn://host_A/repos/trunk/common_ancestor

yet still have this be a cheap transaction where all the history still
resides on host_A, but all further changes reside on host_B.
