I think we use a single transaction for the copy half of the move, but
the whole move is two transactions with the delete half as the second
transaction. This is ugly because the move can be interrupted and then
a partial move is present in the database. I'd like to change:




so that the problem goes away. Fundamentally that can't work with
disjoint working copies. I think move between disjoint working copies
will have to degrade to copy+delete, otherwise something like:

svn mv wc1/A wc2/B
svn up wc1

is going to have to update the disjoint wc2.
