This topic seems to pop up ever so often... :)

Since the last time I saw it discussed, you announced in the 1.1.0-rc
release note that "diff and other subcommands correctly follow
renames". With this in place, is there any part of the "advanced merge
functionalities" that maybe could be implemented sooner than
"someday"?

You've probably guessed by know that I'm rather eager to see
subversion acquire these capabilities. I feel that this would make svn
take a big leap from being a "better CVS" to approaching the league of
some quite decent commercial systems.
