TSVN does not rename files. But it will help you not to shoot yourself
in the foot:
If you've already checked in the file "FooBar.designer.cs" and somehow
you've renamed it to "FooBar.Designer.cs" (without an 'svn rename',
sometimes IDEs do that), then TSVN will rename it back to what it was
checked in.
Also, this is in the docs and the FAQ.
(try it some time, you might be surprised what you might learn)
