refactor doesn't trigger svn move

Hello Subclipse team,

we've just migrated our codebase from CVS to SVN and subclipse is a
really great tool!

But there is (at least for us) a quite huge issue as well: The main
reason for us to migrate was that CVS doesn't support "move" - instead
it deletes and re-adds with the result that the history of a file gets
lost. Eclipse has - as you probably all know very well - the convenient
feature to refactor (i.e. change method signatures or rename/move
classes and packages). Hence, I thought the problem of CVS (loosing the
file's histories with each refactoring) would be solved now.

But this seems not to be the case :-( I just renamed a java class and it
is displayed as new file (with the little "+" symbol) instead of being
moved. Did I do anything wrong?

It would be absolutely great, if subclipse would hook into the
refactoring and do a subversion-move instead of deleting and re-adding
the files. Thank you very much in advance for considering my feature

In case, someone has already mentioned this before, I'm very sorry for
the noise - I've searched all mailing list archives for "refactor" and
didn't find anything...

Best regards, Marco :-)
