Actually, we run svn move. Internally it does a delete + add.

The answer to this problem is not to have Subclipse add some ugly hack
that does not really help. The answer is to press Subversion to add
better support for want you want to do. There have been patches and
discussions in these areas already, they just have not been committed yet.
 JavaSVN already included support for some (maybe all) of this. It just
does not expose it via the API that we call.
