[Subclipse-dev] [svnclientadapter] Generating a diff for a renamed file as a full delete-create

I am developing an Eclipse plugin (
https://github.com/rombert/ereviewboard ) which will offer Subclipse
integration . This integration mainly involves posting a diff to a
remote code review server.The single case which I am unable to handle
correctly is a renamed file. When renaming a Java class, named Second:

package com.example;

public class Second {


to Third:

package com.example;

public class Third {


I would expect the diff to show that Second.java has all lines deleted
and Third.java has all lines added. While Second.java does have all
lines deleted, Third.java only has a diff from Second.java:

Index: src/com/example/Third.java
--- src/com/example/Third.java (revision 2)
+++ src/com/example/Third.java (working copy)
@@ -1,5 +1,5 @@
 package com.example;

-public class Second {
+public class Third {


I am currently using svnClient.createPatch(changes,
_project.getLocation().toFile(), tmpFile, false) to generate the diff,
but have experimented with svnClient.diff as well, with no success.

What are my options of generating a delete-create diff for a renamed file?
