Actually, if you have a working copy of 'trunk' with local mods, we
usually recommend:

   svn copy http://host/repos/trunk http://host/repos/branches/mybranch
   svn switch http://host/repos/branches/mybranch

It's much faster than 'svn cp . URL'.

You could write a utility script to automatically create branches and
switch to them quickly. No need to remember the whole URL.
