Further, one of the ways users get mixed-revision working copies is by
committing. If one then moves such a mixed revision and it degrades to
copy+delete it is not generally possible to commit the 'move' because
some part of the delete will be out-of-date. If we don't make users
update before move they often have to run update before comitting. If
the users have to run update anyway it's far better to get them to do it
before the move so that move tracking works.
