    But since mv is currently `dumb' and can't do this anyhow, we may as
    well make the `new improved mv' work with abstracted metadata via a
    library and not tie it down to the filesystem.

    This whole thread is getting rather tedious anyhow. I think I'll go
    away and ignore it until somebody has some working code that actually
    solves a practical problem.
