Actually, I had this code working just fine, allowing this:

   svn mv -r 5 foo bar

to mean this:

   copy revision 5 of foo to bar, delete foo (from head revision, not
   revision 5)

Some chatter on IRC convinced me last night to not allow folks to do
this, though, since it reads as though we are removing something from
revision 5.

As for whether or not the filesystem fully protects -- your guess is
as good as mine. I feel pretty confident that it does, though.
