  We [KDE] went through this and now host the largest SVN repository.  We did 
track server-side moves, at least to an extent, and it took a LONG time to 
sort it out.  We do have lots of tools and scripts now, and some of them 
might be helpful or insightful.  I can help get the right people in touch if 
there is motivation.
