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.

Go with Thorsten Sch├Âning's svn:externals solution.  If you can't use svn:externals then
you'll most likely need to merge, which requires a workspace and runs the risk of merge conflicts,
which tends to preclude automation.  Either way, be careful that you're not trying to replace
a complicated workflow/process with overly simplistic automation, i.e. don't replace merging
or a formal delivery process with mindless automated commit replication.
