This should be an automatic commit, triggered by the commit to trunk, while being aware of the fact that no other changes should be done in branch A but the autocommit from trunk.

Post commit script that deletes branch A and then recreates branch A from trunk, i.e. make branch A effectively a tag. Since the delete and copy are server side commands, no workspace is needed to make it work. However this will fail if (when) you need to make custom changes on branch A.
