Feature request (4) -- status of modified copies

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

Hello,
 
Suppose that you have modified and renamed a file:
 
    $ svn mv old_name new_name
    $ ### (edit contents of new_name)
 
The command
 
    $ svn st
    A + new_name
    D old_name
 
has the same response whether or not new_name was modified. The command
 
    $ svn diff new_name
 
will of course reveal the edits. Is there a way to reveal that the copy
is a modified copy in the status?
 
If not, should the response from the status instead be as follows:
 
    $ svn st
    M + new_name
    D old_name
 
or alternatively a new combined added-with-history-and-modified
indicator:
 
    $ svn st
    A M new_name
    D old_name
 

(It would also be useful if --summarize could be used on working
copies.)

 
Thanks,
Rob.
 
 
Rob Hubbard.
