Maybe I'm inserting my own opinions into the original poster's question,
but I think this part is what he is asking about. It doesn't accept
wildcards and typing this command hundreds of times isn't really an
option. With some shell programming, it can be done, but the OP says he
doesn't have access to that. Why doesn't "svn move" accept wildcards?
