Well, we release the tags/ tree, not the branches/ tree, so it isn't
that much of a hassle either way.

You don't want two copies.  Best I can suggest is you ***might***
want a alias 4.2 for now that would go away, and be replaced with the
4.2.0 branch in a mv later.  SVN externals would let you accomplish
this without breaking things.

(Never use externals in a release tags/ tree however).
