I don't have a full answer for you, but you could conceivably fix this
by doing a two-step:

svn rm .../svnrepo/production/users/sudoers
svn copy .../svnrepo/work/users/sudoers@544

On the whole, though, it does seem like subversion ought to support the
replacement of a file by moving/copying another file on top of it,
without requiring the rm command (and the extra revision), which would
allow you to do exactly what you're asking for...
