Or, learn what to expect from the tool you use... If I followed the
thread correctly, the 'problem' involved was not expecting subversion
to consider a directory rename as a change to everything below. If
you know that subversion doesn't know/care about the location of what
you think of as the 'project', you could simply position it so that
you wouldn't need to rename the directories above the branches. Or at
least not be surprised when subversion sees that as a change.
