Hi Ben,

Thanks for the comments. I left a bit of the history of our in-house
source control system out. It is currently one folder with a heap of
files in it, not organised by project or anything like that (which
obviously has some deficiencies). Sounds like a nightmare I know, and
hopefully it will change in the future. So for the moment moving single
files around seems the logical way to go for these legacy files.
