Re: Renaming files on win32

Subversion is open-source and well-written patches are welcomed. If it
doesn't behave as you think it should, feel free to submit a patch.
Perhaps if you can get Subversion to do what you want on Windows without
breaking behaviors on *BSD, Linux, MacOSX, Solaris, BeOS, OS/2, etc.,
they might even grant you commit privileges!
