We do *not* record moves today.

We *will* at some point in the future, which is most likely *after*
the 1.7 release.

The node functions will *hopefully* die *before* 1.7.

Thus, moved_here is not a strongly relevant concept for the node
functions, *unless* we decide a given function's semantic is truly
material and should survive as a (semi?) public WC API for use by
libsvn_client.
