Check out command line "svn move -h" and you will see some
interesting remarks on this. At least with 0.35.1 I still do. Take
special care for the note in line 3 ...

BTW I just had to move some files from one folder to another in
TSVN, but very much missed the respective command in the TSVN
context menu. Yes, I found it can be done with right drag'n'drop,
however, as I use a touchpad, not that ever hopping mouse thing, I
nearly broke two fingers on this operation. And it does not work in
TotalCommander at all (only the normal commands there, not the
TSVN items; I never use WinExplorer anymore).

It was a plain move, no file rename involved, and left me
daydreaming about how nice it would be to have a context menu
entry for copy/move, opening a dialog asking for the target path,
and perhaps a Browse button ... Or was it just too dark to see it?
OK, I finally used rename to keep my fingers safe and well, but it
was an awful thing to have to type the new path over and over again
for each and every file. The command line client not accepted ?
