Creating a 'latest release' directory in a repository

Hi all,
  I want to make a 'latest release' directory in an SVN repository, so users can check out the latest release of a library from a single URL. SVN COPY won't work for this situation since it doesn't let me copy a file to a destination directoty if it already exists there. Symlinks are out of question, since I also use Windows machines.
  The only way I can think of is deleting the old release from the destination directory, commiting, copying the new release and commiting again. This process seem awkward, and it creates repository revisions where the release directory is empty.
  I would appreciate if anyone can suggest a better way.
