There are 2 caveats:
- For moving and copying the whole working copy, you better make sure that no other process is accessing the working copy concurrently.

- In 1.6, there are some cases where moving or copying subfolders without using the SVN commands did break things. It was never officially supported, it only worked by chance in some cases.
