Feature request (1) -- svn historyset

From: Rob Hubbard <rob.hubbard_at_softel.co.uk>

Hello,
 
Sometimes when using SVN, I have added a file, which was a copy of a
version controlled file. That is, I have done this:
 
    $ cp file1 file2
    $ svn add file2
 
when I *should* have done this:
 
    $ svn cp file1 file2
 
I would like to be able to retrospectively link <file2> to <file1> so
that it will be added "with history", without having to do this:
 
    $ svn revert file2 ### undo the add
    $ mv file2 file2.tmp ### move out of the way
    $ svn cp file1 file2
    $ rm file2
    $ mv file2.tmp file2 ### move back
    $ svn setprop propname propvalue file2 ### restore any
properties...
 
I'd like, instead, to be able to do something like this
 
    $ svn historyset file1 file2[@pin-revision
<mailto:file2_at_pin-revision> ] [-r revision]
 
Is this already supported in some way that I've missed?
 
Thanks,
Rob.
 
 
Rob Hubbard
