Yes, it would absolutely have to be a plain "mv" -- anything else
increases the laod instead of decreasing it.

However this would be a nightmare for anyone with any number of pkgsrc
working directories checked out (including one).  CVS doesn't take such
unorthodox reorganisation of the repository very well.

It makes a lot more sense to just start fresh with a new module created
with the correct structure right from the start.
