Note that peg revisions for copy are not supported in 1.4, but will be
in 1.5.

Also, if you want to simply get a copy of the file, but not create a new
versioned copy, you want the export subcommand. Something like:
svn export file:///home/silvio/svn/proyecto/Documentacion.pdf_at_5 \

export does support peg revisions in 1.4.
