svn not following redirects

From: Jon Scott Stevens <jon_at_latchkey.com>

Imagine this simple apache configuration:

<Location "/">
        Redirect /trunk/ http://svntest.domain.com/tags/1.0/
        DAV svn
        SVNPath /var/svn/test

If i use my browser to go to:


It gets redirected properly to:


Now, if I do:

svn co http://svntest.domain.com/trunk/ test

then I get:

svn: URL 'http://svntest.domain.com/trunk' doesn't exist.

So, my question is how can I make svn follow redirects and why
doesn't it already?

The idea that I'm experimenting with is the ability to create what
amounts to an alias. I want to be able to pin a specific tag to a
specific folder and be able to update that tag by just changing the
apache config. svn:externals doesn't quite help in this regard
because svn also wouldn't find that 'trunk' folder either.
