1. This will require to user to configure Status column to be very
wide. Just imagine something like:

Path
subversion\bindings​\javahl\src\org\​apache\subversion\​javahl\ClientExcept​ion.java
 moved from subversion\bindings​\javahl\src\org\​tigris\subversion\​javahl\Exception.ja​va

2. This will be be inconsistent with Subversion command line output

3. There will be no options for user to perform operations on deleted
side of move
