What you see here is a often requested feature which IMO comes from a
much larger issue. I think we should do an interim release to clean
out the issue tracker. No glorious new features, just bugfixes. This
release should address the rename problem, schedule-add-with-history
and a few others which can seriously mess up day-to-day work with svn.
 Surely, if 1.3 were to be that release, it will include neon 0.25
too.

What do you think?

Erik.
