-0 for now, but maybe I don't understand. Are you guys talking about:

  1) 'svn mv wc1/A wc2' will error out, and user will have to figure
out that he needs to execute 'svn copy; svn delete'


  2) 'svn mv wc1/A wc2' will do the same as 1.7 did, under the hood.


The difference being that option 1 is a regression for an existing use
case, and option 2 is actually not a regression (the cross-wc move
just doesn't get the "move-tracking" enhancement that is new in 1.8).
