Yes, 2282 is about making the current add/delete user interface more
friendly.

But you're right, the "core" problem is that we don't have true
moves. That's something we're working on in phases now, starting
with adding such a feature to the repository filesystem in svn 1.3,
and then watching API and UI changes ripple out from there. If you
want to watch the discussion, subscribe to the dev@ list.

(I'm somewhat excited about this, because while visiting Collabnet HQ
this week, a few of us came up with a workable schema change to the
repository to add this feature. We'll be talking about it on the
dev@ list soon.)
