Did you mean
mv $1 $2
svn mv $1 $2


If so, unfortunately I tried that, and the svn mv command fails if the
file is already gone. It throws an error that the source path doesn't
exist, and using --force it doesn't work.

I'm debating writing a little utility that can do an inform_copy and an
inform_delete, by copying the tag in the entries file, adding the
appropriate attributes, and copying the pristine text and props files
and the local props file.

From what I can make out, I should have to add the following for a copy:


and the following for a delete:


But I'd like to avoid touching the .svn directory myself if there's
