Cheap SVN copy of file just added?

Hi all,

I guess this is not possible, but want to ask anyway:

I just added an image going with a new webpage, neither
committed yet.

Incidentally a modified version of the webpage with the very same
image is to be added simultaneously to a different place (same
repository, different folder resolving to different domain, so pointing
to the image in just one place is no good solution).

After adding the image to place A I found it could not be SVN
copied to another place yet. I expected this for a file not yet in the
repository, but probably I have missed something?

Certainly I could split the operation into two steps: add&commit the
stuff in place A, then copy to place B and commit in a second
step. Illogical for the human workflow where adding to A&B is but
one operation, but to be weighed against duplicating things in the
repository. Not much of an issue spacewise if happening now and
then, but a nuisance if happening more frequently.

SVN 1.4.6 (client) / Win2K.
