That's great news.

For me and my company, this enhancement (true rename) will be a major step
towards svn adoption, since it will imply really true merging and
refactoring capabilities.
( For now on, it is not possible to reliably create a branch, refactor
aggressively with package/files renames and changes, ... and do a later on
merging into a trunk that may have evolved on some identical files, and
this is a pity, really )

Thanks for all has been done so far on svn, and thanks in advance for
adding this great functionality "true rename" will be.
