If the patch is just changes to existing files, it would work fine,
but since you have renames happening as well, you're right, that
can't be expressed in a diff so something more involved is necessary.

svn_load_dirs.pl already does that... to an extent. It's not a GUI
you can click and drag with your mouse, but it's a quasi-GUI on the
command line.

Of course, I too would love a "real" GUI of svn_load_dirs.pl, and I
expressed some ideas for such a tool in this message:
