Branches vs branches. Can I rename the default Subversion branches location?

Can I rename or reformat the default Subversion branches location? All of our SVN have Branches with a capital "B" and the default folder with a lowercase fails. Right now, I have to manually change every plan to get it to work properly.

You can find this option in SVN Repository's 'advanced settings'

That is just as bad, atleast the option I found. I can only turn off "Automatically detect root URL for branches" and set an absolute URL there. I can already override it on an individual basis from the Branches tab. I tried a few variations of relative paths but they all resulted in server errors when going to the Branches tab.

I ended up fixing it on the SVN server side.

Apache:

RewriteRule ^/Adept/(.+)/branches(.*)  http://svn/Adept/$1/Branches$2 [P]

Since it is virtual I needed to include the absolute web URL. Without the [P] flag (proxy) it was returning a 302 redirect, with the flag the server only handles the request and the client is simply returned the correct page from the single request.
