Refactor->renamed files and updating.

Not sure if this is implemented yet or if it is
implemented and it's not working like I expected:


1. Joe and Charlie check out head of a repository.
2. Joe begins working on foo.java
3. Charlie begins working on foo.java as well, and
decides it is misnamed and doesn't do 'foo' it does
'bar'.. so he changes code in foo... then
refactor->renames the class 'foo' to 'bar'
4. Now Charlie commits his 'version' of the project.
foo.java is gone and bar.java is added.
5. In the meantime.. Joe has made MAJOR changes to
his snapshot's 'foo.java' file.. now.. when he is
ready to commit.. he properly does his 'update' to get
everyone elses changes in order to merge/resolve
conflicts etc..

Here's where the issue is... Joe does his update..
but instead of getting to merge his code changes to
foo.java with Charlie's code changes to foo.java
(which is now bar.java), Joe now see's his foo.java as
unversioned... and hey.. there's now a new file
bar.java, but nothing to indicate to Joe that bar.java
used to be foo.java. and any other file that
referenced the class foo has been refactored to
reference bar.. so when he commits.. no one is going
to be referencing his class or his changes.. and they
will not be 'merged' into the new bar.java.

Shouldn't subclipse let you know that the file you
edited was moved? or at least throw some kinda of
warning.. or error.. otherwize on a large team..
something will more than likely go unnoticed until too
