Bit of a priority difference here: The important 1.0 features are the
ones we *share* with CVS, while many (though not all) of the
differentiators are gravy.

Agree that true repository renames would be nice, but I still think
they're Post-1.0 and it's not a crisis for those who use Subversion
before then. Renames in those repositories will be represented as
copies+deletes, and will continue to be so represented after any
schema switch. So there's backwards compatibility here.

There was a thread here recently, "svn_fs_merge not used" I believe,
that brought up the rename question.
