After some experiments I also found that what you described is
the most convenient way. Keeps history and allows a single
commit for the whole operation where you're done. Forms are
a bit more arduous as you need to rename two files (the source
and the resource).

AnkhSVN provides a rename function that do the said task
in one click. It's still in beta and there are corner cases
that are buggy. Its devs are working on them.

Beware of renames that only differ in case, though.
I remember that it took more than one commit to do the task.
(There were issues with Visual Studio besides the Subversion one.)
