Move tracking

It would be nice if clone tracked svn moves (as in "svn mv") from other locations to the current location. Currently history is truncated and starts from the first revision at the new location. I sometimes need ancient history when working on code that wasn't changed for a long time.

    This is a problem if you have a big repository with many projects, and you want to clone a sub-project with hgsubversion (--follow doesn't apply in this case). For example:

    • big-project
      • subproject1
        • trunk, tags, branches
      • subproject2
        • trunk, tags, branches

    And you rename "big-project" to "new-big-project". Then if you clone subproject1, its history is truncated to the point where the move happened.
