Moving a bunch of files as one revision.

Hi all,

I feel like I am missing something. Searching the emails and the book have
not helped yet!

I have a group of 25 files in a working directory that I want to move to
another working directory. (Both in the same repository.) The command
line does not seem to accept wild cards and the SVN MOVE HELP does not seem
to show multiple file syntax. In the mailing list I found a rather cryptic
shell script for applying an ADD to a bunch of files located with GREP, but
--if I read it right-- it still used individual SVN invocations for each
file. Is there a way to use wild cards or an indirect file list so that a
move operation can be applied to a group of files and have all the moves
be considered the same revision and all done with one invocation of svn?

I don't like the idea of bumping my revision count 25 times just because I
have 25 files to move. As well as having to use a shell script to do the
25 invocations.

What am I missing?
