_All_ svn copies and moves retain the revision history of the
contents. That's how branches and tags work, but it also applies to
any other copies. You can use a url->url copy or check out the
directory above and 'svn copy' in the workspace before committing back
with the same result. Also note that even if you move a path, it can
still be accessed at it's previous path and revisions using the peg
syntax: path_at_revision.
