Subversion tracks the old names of files (where was this path copied from),
but currently it can't answer the question to what was this file renamed.

There are some ideas on adding this forward tracking for file copies and
moves, but I don't think somebody is actively working on integrating this
support right now. (Please correct me if I'm wrong).
