+1, for consistency with other 'svn' output.

A side-note about showing ".." in the output:

When the relpath would involve ".." components as in this example, then
"moved from /abs/path/to/x/alpha" would be an acceptable alternative. I
don't recall us having any code at the moment for generating a "../"
output as the difference of two abspaths. We do display such outputs
sometimes, but I think only when we append a relpath to a "../" style
path that was given as input:

  $ (cd subversion/libsvn_client/ && svn st ../libsvn_fs)
  M ../libsvn_fs/access.c

I would not be opposed to adding and using some code that can generate a
"../" path as the difference between two (abs|rel)paths.
