Just copying a dir isn't supported. (the plan has been to provide a new
subcommand for that, but that won't happen before 1.8)

You might be able to duplicate the whole wc and do 'svn switch' to the
subdirectory's URL (which will tell you to pass --ignore-ancestry), but
I'm not sure how much server communication will be done in that case.
(it will certainly contact the server, since without '-r' switch always
assumes '-r HEAD')
