Similarly renames and code shuffling between files easily creates
a lot of extra work, as svn isn't smart enough to merge changes
from changed files into the new file (let alone the new location
of a file fragment, e.g. when a function is moved to another file).

Such changes shouldn't be made lightly, in my very humble opinion.

Best regards,

P.S. Any svk gurus around willing to tell me what I'm doing wrong?
