If you create an empty directory in another_folder, you can switch
that to old_path with the following command:

svn switch empty-dir http://svn_addr/another_folder/new_path

Consecutive 'svn update's will update the new_path with the changes
committed to the other folder's new_path. Note: your own changes will
be committed .../old_path.
