I may be wrong about this, but I believe the plan is to give the
initial command-line client "svn rm" and "svn mv" commands, in
addition to the traditional "svn add".

Thus, instead of having the client attempt to infer what you want, we
have a clear way of indicating that you intend to twiddle directory
structure in the repository, not just your working copy.
