And I mean it as long as you claim "Subversion is meant to be a better
CVS". (Check CVSNT for instance.)

I like Subversion and I appreciate your work. But I have real life
problems with this bug which I didn't have with CVS. Think about
refactoring, branching and merging.
Keeping the history after a rename operation is not as important as not
loosing changes in moved files - for me and my developers.

I've had some discussions about that with Ben Colins-Sussmann last time
in thread "Questions on moving files and directories". He confirms that
it is a bug. Read #2282. It's about conflicts - not true renames.

I didn't mean to offend you or your colleagues.
