Re: svn_load_dirs: improving rename matching vs. svnsync

I read on http://piston.rubyforge.org/caveats.html

Piston does not track copies or renames. Since Subversion does renames in
two phases (copy + delete), that is what Piston does.

So, should I care? If its not part of the SVN paradigm perhaps even
svn_load_dirs.pl shouldn't attempt it.

Does this just mean if the file gets renamed the programmer should be
responsible for moving their change manually to the file name?
