I've had better luck with polarion's svn-importer, regarding file re-naming
that I've done. It does have a problem with file creation on branches, and
how CVSNT marks them as "deleted" on the trunk at the same time they're
added on the branch. I've done some experiments with modifying the ,v files
to remove that one "deleted" mark, and it seems to be fine. So I'll probably
be writing a perl script to pre-process a copy of my ,v files to strip out
that deletion mark, but I haven't gotten around to it yet.
