I think it's more a matter of working style than preference -- e.g., if
you apply a patch that deletes/renames some files, you have to get rid
of the ids (well actually in that case you should use `tla-update-ids',
but ...).

Oddly I'm told that subversion doesn't offer any way to do such
after-the-fact updates, at least for moves (I have no first-hand
knowledge though)!!

You're probably right.

I think it would be immensely useful, BTW, if there was a `See-also: ...'
section in help output.
