What workaround? Do you refer to the need to call 'svn mv' to tell svn
about the rename?

Normally, 'svn mv' does two things: (a) rename the file on disk,
(b) record in .svn/ that the rename had happened. As of 1.8, we allow
the user to tell 'svn mv' to do only (b). We don't expose that ability
in the standard command-line client, but it's available to API users
(such as tortoisesvn and bindings scripts) via the 'metadata_only'
parameter to svn_client_move7().

No idea about your other questions...
