The trouble with that is that each new branch you create will include
all the previous branches prior to that date.

For example, if you have
/svn/Sumo/ - main code
/svn/Sumo/BRANCHES - directory for branches
/svn/Sumo/BRANCHES/branch1 - first branch
/svn/Sumo/BRANCHES/branch2 - second branch

when you create your third branch,

svn cp /svn/Sumo/ /svn/Sumo/BRANCHES/branch3

branch3 will now also contain branch1 and branch2 -
