This is a good question if you mean "Subversion should fix it", which is how I
originally took your reply and started typing up ideas.

Then I realized that's not what I meant. What I meant is that if you have a
file added in this way and it's not what should have been done, then you should
manually remove the bastard file (saving a copy), restore the original one, and
then put in the latest version, with any new history (hopefully short) captured
in a single log message. I wasn't suggesting any changes to Subversion, nor
that it be terribly difficult to do this if it's deliberate.
