Depends on what "don't really have access" means. Does it mean can't run
batch files or open a command prompt, or does it mean that he doesn't know
how to do the things needed? The "svn move" step above could be
accomplished by doing something like this at a DOS command prompt, not even
in a script:

    for %v in (<fspec.1> <fspec.2> <fspec.N>) do svn move %v trunk\%v

Default "shell scripting" in Windows is perhaps not as flexible as offered
in some *nix shells, but can still accomplish quite a bit.
