There is a separate design effort underway (moving VERY slowly, AFAICT)
to come up with a New Magical Standardized Tree Patch Format that will
embed move, copy, add, delete information. If that design effort ever
goes anywhere I think it's safe to say that svn would soon acquire
native support for it, perhaps via "svn diff --tree" and "svn patch
--tree", or something.
