[Subclipse-users] Moving items between repositories

Subclipse 1.0RC3
Eclipse 3.1
Subversion 1.3.0

I've just tried two experiments with the Refactor/Move command in
Eclipse. The first moved an item between two projects in the same
repository, while the second moved items between two different

The first worked flawlessly - a single transaction created a copy and
deleted the old version.

The second didn't work at all - Subversion (understandably) complained
that you can't copy an item from one repository to another.

It would be nice if the second case were handled better. If Subclipse
could detect that the repositories are different, it could delete in one
repository and add the item (as a new file) into the old one. This would
require confirmation on the part of the user that they understood that
history would be lost, but I can see it being useful. Of course, the
same functionality is "manually" available through copy/paste/delete,
but then the rest of Eclipse's refactoring support is lost.

Does this sound like a reasonable feature request (albeit a low priority
