Would be very slow... And I don't think it is a good idea to scan all
files around there. What if you do a `mv foo bar/foo`?

Hm, maybe a svn mv --force to tell subversion "take this file from now on".

I don't think this would run on all platforms. I don't like to have a
different workflow on another platform. You always would have to check
if the daemon is running before you start working so you would end up in
`svn mv` again.
