Short answer: no, that's not a feature.

But I have a question here: if the subdirectories share a common parent,
then why not tag (i.e. copy) the whole parent? OTOH, if they don't,
you're already having to do multiple checkout/update/commit commands,
right? So why is having multiple copy commands a problem?
