Thanks Hyrum. It worked great for me on OSX.

Only request might be some kind of output while it is running. Maybe some
kind of message as it processes each folder.

The command copies a subdirectory and its children from one WC to a new
location to create a new WC. This is exactly how I think it should work as
I can always go back to the original WC and run --set-depth=exclude if I
wanted to remove the content from the source WC. I wonder if people will
expect a script named "detach" to copy or do they think it will move?
