Ok, that makes more sense.

For what its worth, it would be easier for me (and possibly others?) to comprehend if the "A" in the 'svn status' output for "copied" files in this case (from a 'svn mv') would have a different 'svn status' value that would designate it's a move or a copy or something...at least something that's different then a simple "A" used in generic-flavored add commands, which might lead one to worry (like I did) about lost history.

Might Subversion developers consider a future change? Alas, I suspect this is not the first time this topic has been debated.

Thanks all for the feedback on this thread.
