Nope, just as in a Unix filesystem, the destination directory of a move
or copy operation has to exist already. One of the examples I used was
to copy to /maintenance/foo-bar-baz, which works because /maintenance
already exists. If you tried to copy to /maintenance/foo/bar/baz
instead, Subversion would give you a "path not found" error because
/maintenance/foo/bar does not exist (and unfortunately it won't try to
create it for you).

I believe there are more instances of the abridgement of the freedom of the
people by gradual and silent encroachments of those in power than by violent
and sudden usurpations.
