You could find a better way of working, maybe ;-) Renaming files
regularly sounds like a recipe for confusion, if not disaster. How about
having a makefile which makes renamed copies of your source files, and
updates them when you edit your source? That way you only have to edit a
makefile to rename everything.

TSVN still cannot follow renames in the repository browser as SVN does
not provide the API function for it from a full URL. However, it can
follow renames from your working copy. Note that the default for TSVN's
show log is to stop on copy (which is what an SVN rename is), so you
need to 'Get all' to go through the rename.
