You don't *have* to use url-moves. Nobody's forcing you. You just need
to understand that working-copy-moves are O(N), and repository moves are
O(1). You can choose your inconvenience: is it more inconvenient to
figure out the proper URLs to use, or is it more inconvenient to wait
O(N) time for the copy to happen?

Run 'svn info' on any working copy path. It will tell you the
repository URL it represents.
