In subversion, to create a new branch is :
svn cp trunk/modules/modulename branches/DRUPAL-4-6/modules/modulename

to remove a branch is :
svn rm branches/DRUPAL-4-6/modules/modulename

oh. and the windows and unix front ends handle this all superbly.

*disclaimer* drupal doesn't run subversion. but i still think  
subversion is more sane for real people.
