Enhancement request: TSVN equivalent of svn copy -r

Dear user list,

thank you very much for your responses. All described methods work, but
they result in a modified file not a replaced one. So I think this
revert needs memory in the repository to save the differences while the
copy method just needs an internal link (cheap copy). If we were taking
about a large image file this was an important difference. Using the
copy method should furthermore enable tools like revision graph - as
long as merge history is not supported by SVN - to notice these reverts.
Last but not least the log messages of the discarded revisions are no
longer displayed. This makes understanding the current state easier.

So I propose to add a function like "SVN copy file / folder" in the log
messages viewer and the repository browser, which SVN deletes the file
in the working copy if exsisting and then SVN copies the file. A right
click drag and drop was a nice feature, too.

Could this be implemented ?

Sven
