You're acting like this is a normal thing that needs to be documented,
yet I know of no such behavior. Why don't you report a bug-recipe to
the users@ or dev@ list instead?

Huh? An 'svn rename' is exactly the same as running 'svn copy' and
'svn delete'. When you revert these changes, you get exactly what is
expected: the deleted thing comes back, and the added thing is no
longer scheduled for addition. Maybe you can explain what you're
seeing a bit more.
