I don't think you'll find one. The repository needs to see these as 2
distinct actions, and that means 2 commits/transactions, therefore at
least 2 steps.

If this is something you'll be doing frequently, write a script around
the svn client, and it'll only be one step to execute, and the script
will do everything automatically.
