My original reply follows the quote. I mistakenly sent it to the original

I haven't had a chance to use Subversion yet. However, while using CVS, the
thought of moving a working copy from one machine (A) to another (B) has
never even occurred to me. Rather, I would commit from (A) anything worth
keeping, and check it out to (B). You could always label the version as
some kind of migration. The feature that says I should be able to move a
working copy from one machine to another is a very, very low-priority one
for me. It just doesn't feel like proper use of
CVS/Subversion/<some-other-version-control-package>.
