Most commits use implied arguments -- the target is a subtree or
subtrees (sometimes implied '.'). Thus, usually you will not be in
the position of having to name either side of the rename.

But when the user *does* specify exactly one side, I think it would be
too much "Do What [you guess] I Mean" instead of "Do What I Say" for
Subversion to commit the other side of the rename as well. I feel
it's safer to just error out. At any rate, I'd like to at least start
with that behavior and see how it works out.

(However, this is a minor detail anyway. If I get outvoted on this
one, I'm not going to feel too bad.)
