I see that. You may be interested to know that it was not possible to 
have SVN working copies just "update" themselves to the new paths... I 
tried a variety of ways, but nothing would work, and all gave cryptic, 
unusable error messages.

That's why I felt it was safer to just tell everyone they either need to 
re-checkout or use "svn switch".
