Yes, some do. At least SVN (Subversion) can handle moves very well, and especially it doesn't loose history on moves/renames.
SVN holds it's repo entries in a database like 'filesystem', which can be backed by BDB4 or flat files (as of 1.1).
SVN has proven to be stable in many OSS projects, and vastly superior over CVS especially in handling multi-GB projects containing binary files in our company.

I refrain from listing all the advantages, if interested, have a look for yourself at

Another compelling reason to use SVN is that one of their long term goals is to use an SQL backend. PostreSQL must be the absolute best choice for that, right? So knowledge of SVN and some future collaboration could perhaps be beneficial for both parties.

SVN is also targeted as a CVS replacement and a CVS user will feel very much at home.
