In you are working in Un*x, it would be possible to do such a thing.
Generate a script containing various mv and rm commands to move and delete
files, followed by an invocation of patch to add and change files. Similar
things must be possible in Windows as well.

The real problem is generating it -- as you say, the diff output does not
contain the information in question. You'd have to write an alternative to
the svn client update/merge that instead of executing the update/merge,
generated the script that would perform it.
