Newbie, with revision history retention question.

Greetings:

We're about to perform some extensive project refactoring of a codebase
that is relatively mature. We're interested in switching to Subversion
(from cvs) because we've heard (and read) that subversion does a better
job of maintaining revision history during file renames or moves.

I'm trying to find confirmation of a point.

Given this scenario:

A file exists: foo/bar/Baz.java

If the file is refactored to: foo/gazonk/BaseBaz.java

Is the revision history retained for all changes made to the original,
Baz.java? Is that revision history still available to view on
BaseBaz.java? Note that not only has the file been renamed, but it has
moved to an entirely different directory. What if the file moved from
one "project" to another, such as foo/bar/Baz.java to
gazonk/bar/Baz.java?

Sorry to pepper everyone with these seemingly obvious questions from a
novice. I need to confirm the behavior to help justify our migration.

Thanks,

-jason
