At the api level there are soms existent options that we don't map in svn. I'm not sure if
these map to the desired --no-target-directory behavior that GNU added though.

Thank you, but it would be nice to have a command line option to turn off this

Seems like a reasonable suggestion.  I'd suggest --no-target-directory which
mirrors the GNU cp option that provides this functionality.  Don't think the
various Windows commands have an equivalent.

Before talking about command-line options (which imply API changes, by the way), can we get
some idea about how "svn cp --no-target-directory A B" should be have when B already exists?
If we start deleting the target, which we've never done before, that's likely to make lots
of people angry when they mess up their repositories (because we don't have a way to properly
undo the mess).
