No, this won't be supported other than running 'svn log
--stop-on-copy' on the URLs of the branches you're interested in.

This doesn't mean the Subversion developers don't want to provide this
information, but we're desparate to bring out merge tracking to the
public, since too many are dying to get it. Addressing the 'copy-to'
information problem will (have) to come later.
