I think the correct way to handle this is to move the truename
conversion from the client to libsvn_client. This is quite a bit of
work, but othewise every client in the world will have to do /something/
to implement true renames, and I don't think that's a reasonable
requirement.

I'm trying to find reasons why doing this would create and API
incompatibility, but for now I can't think of one.
