Question: Best way to create new branch after changes have already been made to trunk WC

From: Mike Harris <GENIE_at_prodigy.net>

Here's my situation. I have made changes to my working copy of our
trunk. After making a week's worth of changes, I now need to shelve the
changes and move on to something else. What I want to do is check these
changes into a branch, but my working copy points to the trunk. What is
the best way to accomplish this? There are a couple ways I know of to
do it, but they seem sub-optimal.

1. I could create the branch of trunk, check out a working copy, then
copy the modified files into the branch working copy and check it in

2. I don't think this even works, but I could relocate (switch
--relocate) my WC from trunk to the new branch and check in. This would
be great, but I don't believe relocate can be used in this fashion.

Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you.
