Just copy Branch A.

It's merging back to the trunk, or merging back to the trunk if anyone
has merged back from branch A, that is a potential nightmare. Ideally
you'd merge back to branch A, and then merge branch A back to the
trunk, and do so consistently.

In subversion, "branches" and "tags" subdirectories are just names for
copied directories of the trunk. You could call them "alfred" and
"liebowitz": it's only the conventions of users that make them
effective for software management.
