Newbie question about "Update to Revision ..."

For simplicity, let's assume that there is only one file in the project. So
the directory inside the repository looks something like,


We made a few changes to file1.txt and so file1.txt has revision 1 and 2.

Now we rename the directory proj to newproj inside the repository browser.
We also switch the working copy to point to .../svnrepos/newproj/file1.txt.
From the log messages window of file1.txt, I can see all the revisions
including 1 and 2. I can even diff between rev 1 and 2 inside the Log
Messages window. This gives me an impression that TSVN or SVN can follow the
history back to even rev 1 and 2.

However when I want to have revision 2 into my working folder (using Update
Item To Revision), TSVN deletes the file1.txt in my working directory. I
understand why this happens. It is because rev 2 does not exist in

But to be consistent with other operations (eg. diff) in the Log Messages
window, should TSVN or SVN be able to follow the history of file1.txt and go
back to svnrepos/proj/file1.txt to get rev 2?
