You've described the purpose of the svncopy perl script, which is included with the Subversion
source code.

#  This script copies one Subversion location to another, in the same way as
#  svn copy.  Using the script allows proper branching and tagging of URLs
#  containing svn:externals definitions.
#  For more information see the pod documentation at the foot of the file,
#  or run -?.
