Right. svn is designed following the Unix conventions that commands don't
see the asterisks, they're expanded by the shell.

Did you mean the ~ literally? That looks like a working copy move, which
would imply you have all your tags checked out. I was assuming you'd do a
repository move, with full URLs specified for both source and dest. I think
a repository move would be a lot faster.
