When you do a move or a rename, Subclipse executes the svn move
command/API. Open the Eclipse Console and you can see what it does.

Internally in Subversion, the move command does an Add (copy) followed by
a Delete.

This is a pretty common thing that confuses people. The main benefit you
get from doing a move in Subversion is that after you commit, the history
of the file will trace back past the copy to the previous version.
