Renaming directories

From: David Arnold <dwarnold45_at_cox.net>

All,
I've written a text in TeX and I have the files in directories:

chapter0
chapter1
chapter2
chapter3

I need to rename the directories to:

chapter1
chapter2
chapter0
chapter4

Inside each directory we have to rename files. For example, we have
section1.tex, section2.tex, section3.tex and equations.tex in chapter0.
We need to rename these to section1.tex, section3.tex, section4.tex,
and section2.tex, respectively.

We are aware of the svn move command, but our question is one of
structure. We've already tagged a revision as fall2006 and put it in
our tags directory. The project current resides in the trunk directory.
It is this one that will need massive renaming.

Before we take a brute force attack on this, is there some advice that
people can share for a safe and efficient way to do the renaming?

Are branches something we should consider? Will our "tagged" fall2006
version be affected by any renaming? Etc.

Any advice appreciated.

Thanks.
