A better way renaming a file in svn?

I am not quite sure if I am weird or what, but it seems I cannot find a proper answer for renaming files in svn.

The official documentation assumes I am going to (out of my all worries of coding and maintenance) rename files using svn before I make changes!!!

Am I missing something or what? Can svn accept a renaming I did using the file system without forcing me to revert the old file and moving the new file I worked with to another folder before I can make (svn mv old_file new_file), after then only I can bring back the new file I worked on and then replace it back!

I am using SilkSVN version 1.8.13 on Windows.
