What do you mean by "real moving is not available yet"? Sure it is!

TortoiseSVN does: right-drag the folder in your working copy to the
new location and then commit the parent folder.

'svn mv' works with http URL quite well!

There's a "Get All" button in the log dialog. Ever tried that one? It
will get all the log messages.
By default, the log dialog shows you only the logs up to the first
'copy', i.e. rename/move. This is to find the revision where a branch
started much easier.
