Hi Stefan.

Thanks.  I agree your definition satisfies the requirements for such an id as defined in <http://wiki.apache.org/subversion/MoveDev/MoveDev#Move_Semantics>, as far as I can tell after a quick think.

Hi Brane.

I've replied in that other thread "Moves in FSFS".  We all seem to be talking at cross purposes there, all thinking we have a shared understanding when in fact we all have different assumptions.  Let's try to be clearer and never write "it will do this" without giving a pointer to the definition of "it".
