making branches, with one more directory level

I have a bunch of different directories under /trunk, only a few of
which are in regular development.

When branching, I'd prefer not to branch the whole of /trunk, so
  svn copy .../trunk .../branches/newbranch
is not ideal.

And I don't want to lose the identity of the subdirectory I'm
branching, so
  svn copy .../trunk/dir1 .../branches/newbranch
is definitely not good either.

If "svn copy" were like Unix "cp -R" that second copy would have
produced .../branches/newbranch/dir1 -- but svn doesn't do it that
way. So I tried:
  svn copy .../trunk/dir1 .../branches/newbranch/dir1
but that is rejected (branches/newbranch does not exist).

Any suggestions? I suppose I can do it in two steps:
  svn mkdir .../branches/newbranch
  svn copy .../trunk/dir1 .../branches/newbranch/dir1
which isn't elegant because it takes two steps, but it works. Or I
could copy .../trunk as a whole and then delete the second level
directories that I don't want.
