[TSVN] RFE: Move unversioned files process

From: Peter Mounce <pete_at_molehole.org>

Hi

I want to rearrange some files into a new folder inside my WC. I select
some versioned files and some unversioned files to move to a newly
created, versioned, directory; I used SVN Move from the right-drag
context menu.

I get a progress dialog. When it gets to one of the unversioned files,
I first got a dialog that tells me it has local modifications, and am I
sure I want to move it? Then (after I say yes) I get an error saying
that file cannot be copied or moved because it's not under version control.

a) If an unversioned file cannot be moved with that context menu item,
why am I asked whether I'm sure I want to move it? Seems the answer is
known, intrinsically, in advance.

b) Can the first question please only apply to _versioned_ files with
local modifications?

c) Can the SVN Move fall back on the normal explorer move operation for
_unversioned_ files, to avoid the error? Since those can be moved
without consequence, and added (if necessary) as a separate operation?

Is this applicable to SVN Copy right-drag context menu item too?

Regards
Pete
