Detect File Move?

From: Goddard Lee <lee.goddard_at_easa.eu.int>

Hello,

What is the best (cheapest, most economical, quickest to operate) way to
detect a file (and/or directory) move?

Realise I probably need to use the post-commit hook, but ... Is it
possible to find out what command was issued to call post-commit,
without going back through the process-ID tree? Realise I could replace
the 'svn' command with something that would call the actual svn command
and then do its own business too, but that's not very clean, and would
lead to the next guy to sit in this chair having awful problems during
the next update , I'm sure.

I notice Tortoise SVN can display such Copied... data, which I thought
came from `svn info` but that requires a working-copy....?

Only a couple of weeks subversion experience, so please forgive any
silliness on my part.

Background, which may/not be relevant: I have multiple repositories
accessed by end users using Windows "WebFolders" (Apache, AuthLDAP, SVN
Dav, autoversioning). It's a dream come true. One repository has a
directory of files generated by an alien application, each of which is
simply a list of paths within the repository. When a document located at
one of those paths moves, the file listing the paths has to be updated
to reflect the move.
