Oh c'mon now.... annoying? Yes. Useless? Not at all. Nobody's asking
you to memorize anything. Just run 'svn log -v' on the file to see the
original path in the old revision. Then run

         svn diff oldURL@X newURL@Y

The workaround is perfectly doable.

There will be soon. The Chicago developers are going to be proposing to
fix this is svn 1.1. It's on our high-priority "hit list".
