I think the main problem is the lack of "true rename" support in
Subversion. I do not believe it has any ability to handle this situation
today as it treats this as a copy followed by a delete. So it does not
have any way to remap your WC to the new location.

I am not sure if it is worth it to try to fix anything with this problem,
but if you disagree you can file an issue for it.
