How do they handle renaming, moving and copying files within a
project? I haven't tried using Visual Studio and TSVN much, but I
found it hard to keep the project files in synch with the actual file
names and locations if I moved/renamed first with TSVN, or I couldn't
easily move/rename files with TSVN after I had done the rename/move in
Visual Studio. Is this a non-issue for everyone else?
