I don't think so.

Suppose you want to rename foo/foo.cpp -> tau/tau.cpp.
(I have this situation again and again due to refactoring.)

For this, today you have to
1) open a windows command shell (Tortoise doesn't support step 4),
2) copy foo/ to /tau
3) delete tau/foo.cpp
4) move (including rename) foo/foo.cpp to tau/tau.cpp
5) delete foo/
6) close the command shell again.

Does someone know an easier way?
This would be cool!

(Using two steps with committing in-between is not possible
because then I would have to adjust the content of several
h/cpp files twice.)

How nice would be be to simply use the Tortoise,
1) rename foo/ -> tau/
2) rename foo.cpp -> tau.cpp
(total: 2*3 mouse clicks and typing each new name exactly once.)

If move != copy + delete, then the above long way
is not possible at all anymore.
What can I do then?????
