large Java codebase using Netbeans refactoring tools) if I could pick
(1) a missing file and (2) a new file, and then say "these files have
been renamed". SVN would locally mark the new file (2) as an "Add with
from the missing file (1), and then mark the missing file (1) for
deletion, i.e. "renaming after the
