This is correct. In svn a copy == a branch == a tag. With the approach
I'm suggesting, what goes out as beta would be fully represented by a
source tree in svn. The copy and the flipping of the bit and such
would all be done and committed to a source tree in the tags
subdirectory of derby/code, copied from the trunk, and what goes out
would not be modified in any way from the a specific revision of the
tags/ subdirectory.

I think there's some confusion over the fact that in svn, copy ==
branch (== tag).
