If the sources and dest are URL's, then it makes sense to want the
multiple moves to appear as a single transaction. By contrast, 'add'
never operates on the repository; it only makes sense for a WC.

(Caveat lector: the client library is terra incognita to me, if you
catch my lingua franca. So take this with a grain of tortellini.)
