Thanks for your reply, Andrey,
But is this not possible to work around in TSVN? All the required
information appears to be there in the log - both the old and new file
names.

In addition, it is already possible to "compare with working copy" past
renames/copys. (Wasn't that a relatively recent fix?) So given that we
can already compare any revision - renamed and copied - with the
working copy, I don't see why another fix would not be possible that
allows the same for "compare revisions".

This would IMO be incredibly useful, and is IMO the main point of having
rename or copy history/log support in any version control. :-)

Thanks again,
- Lars
