RTC - Tracking renames without eclipse integration

Is there a way to force detection of a file rename (via command-line or otherwise) like Mercurial has with its --similarity parameter?

I understand that when working in a RTC-managed Eclipse project, renames within Eclipse are detected, but so far that's the only case I managed. Operations outside Eclipse or even in Eclipse projects inside the Sandbox, but manually imported, I lose this ability and renames are detected as deletions/insertions.

My problem is similar to the comment in this answer:

RTC recognizes renames that it is told about through use of the "rename" function in any of the RTC clients (e.g., the Eclipse client, the Visual Studio client, the command line client, the web browser client).   But it does not currently have a mechanism to "guess" that a file has been moved (as opposed to being deleted, and a file with a different name but similar content having been created).   You could submit an enhancement request for this functionality (the RTC SCM development team prefers that you do so via ).
