moving a large number of folders

I would like to move a large number of tags in a single operation, but cannot
find a way to do so without checking them all out.

The folders are tags of the trunk made over a 5 year period (converted from CVS)
and sit in the folder .../tags.

Since I cannot do multiple URL-->URL renames I would like to check out the tags
folder to a depth of 2 to avoid using up all disk space on my 80Gb drive.

I find that co -N ..../tags just gives an empty working folder, is there a way
to get the subfolders checked out into that folder as well, but without pulling
all theire contents? Then I could add a parallel folder move the old tags into
it and do an atomic commit.

I've tried the obvious stupid ways eg

cd working tags and svn co -N .../tags/subfolder
cd working tags and svn up -N .
cd parent of working tags and svn co -n .../tags/subfolder tags/subfolder

but they don't seem to connect the tags and sub folders properly. Is there a way
to do this?
