That'ws probably not going to be possible for 1.8, sorry. I think adding
such a feature to the existing move implementation now would simply take
too much time.

Perhaps in a later release. Even then, it would require us to run sqlite
queries across multiple databases, so I'd rather wait until several
working copies can share a single wc.db, and then address this issue.

As a workaround, your colleagues can use 'svn copy' and 'svn delete'.
