You can't think how that would handle those actions because many of them
won't be handled at all. 'cp -a wc1 wc2' will result in a non-working-copy
named 'wc2'. 'mv wc1/trunk .; rm -rf wc1' will result in a non-working-copy
named 'trunk'. And so on. There's been talk of adding 'svn' tool support
for these actions, of course, but I don't know if the details have been
decided upon.

Why don't you chime in over on dev@, since that's rather the place to
discuss Subversion's development?
