I just took the new 'mv' functionality for a quick spin (nothing terribly
stressfull) and it seems to work well.

I really appreciate having it since I have a bunch of multi-level paths
from my conversation from KeeSafe that I'm slowly moving over to a flatter
hierarchy and it's much nicer than going in and doing it with git by hand.

BTW, related to this thread, I'm all for clean principles on software, but
in my experience ultimately what makes software successful is the right
compromises on the principles for usefulness.
