This is easier:

svn copy \
svn+ssh://user@host.domain.tld/home/svn/project1{,-tag-rc1} \
-m "rc1"

Using the more traditional trunk / tags / branches layout, the "long
way" would be:

svn copy \
svn+ssh://user@host.domain.tld/home/svn/project1/trunk \
svn+ssh://user@host.domain.tld/home/svn/project1/tags/rc1 \
-m "rc1"

And the simplification would be:

svn copy \
svn+ssh://user@host.domain.tld/home/svn/project1/{trunk,tags/rc1} \
-m "rc1"

This is not a feature of Subversion; it is a feature of the shell.

Writing a shell script that grabs the correct part of the URL from which
the working copy was checked out and constructing the correct svn copy
command shouldn't be too hard. I know there is a script svncopy.pl
available, but I haven't used it so I'm not sure if that's what it does
or if it's for a different purpose.
