Enhanced Project/Tag/Branch management

I've just installed subversion and I think it's a really great tool, so I
first want to thank all developers for it!

I have a suggestion for the svn client which would IMHO make
project/tag/branch management a little more comfortable. One could define a
(client side) project configuration file which defines shorthands for
Subversion URLS along with standard trunc/tag/branch paths. It could look

URL = svn://myhost/some/path
default = trunc
tags = tags
branches = branches
... (More project definitions)

Using this file, the svn tool could easily do some URL rewrites such as

svn co project1 instead of svn co
svn://myhost/some/path/trunc project1
svn co project1/somedir instead of svn co
svn://myhost/some/path/trunc/somedir project1/somedir
svn co project1##sometag instead of svn co
svn://myhost/some/path/tags/sometag project1
svn co project1::somebranch instead of svn co
svn://myhost/some/path/branches/somebranch project1
svn co project1##sometag/somedir instead of svn co
svn://myhost/some/path/tags/sometag/somedir project1/somedir
svn cp . ##sometag instead of svn cp .

and so on. Of course the concrete syntax of how to specify
projects/tags/branches may need some additional thoughts (one could also
introduce some new command line switches -t/-b for specifying tags or
branches), but I hope the idea is clear.

I wonder if anyone else finds this addition useful.
