Nope. Subversion wasn't designed to guess at actions taken after the
fact. Agreed, it *could* be kinder in this aspect, but your whole
system is still violating the basic UI of the working copy. In a
working copy, you're supposed to manipulate the tree using the svn
client: svn add, svn rm, svn cp, svn mv. Your users aren't doing
that, and now you're forced to come up with weird hacks to deal. And
there's no promise that they'll work. :-/

Perhaps a better solution would be to use autoversioning? Have your
users use a DAV client instead of an FTP client. See appendix C in the
book for more info.
