Feature Request: Automatically detect moved or renamed files and folders

Deleted files are in the commit dialog marked as "missing", and when
we check those files they will be deleted.

Since it's possible to sniff the file-system for changes, I'd like
TortoiseSVN to automatically detect when a source-controlled file or
folder is moved or renamed.

Tortoise already know if a file is source controlled or not, the
Windows file system sends events when the file is changed, so it would
be helpful if Tortoise also suggested to move or rename the file in
the repository when that's what happened in the file system.

That would make it so more convenient to work in IDEs like Visual
Studio, where it's natural to move or rename files and folders in the
IDE, and not with Tortoise's menu commands in the Explorer shell.

As it is now, any change to a file or folder not done with the
Tortoise commands will be deleted, then added and all history is lost.

Best regards,
Thomas Eyde
