Well, sorta ;-)

I read the issue report,
http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=898, and it has been
filed four years ago. So that lets me believe the feature is not
important at all. Hence I am probably doing something the wrong way and
  there is an easy workaround for tracking changes in resource names and
directories.

The question is, what does the workaround look like?

Otherwise this would mean that all svn users don't use branches and
merge automagically. Or they don't do any structural changes, besides
adding new files.

Or don't I get it?

Cheers,
Mariano
