But that's scary!  Unix mv overwrites the destination file, and -- on 
the surface -- darcs move seems to include such an mv!  Also, aren't 
there situations that are ambiguous enough that darcs can't choose the 
right one of the two semantics to do?  I would feel safer if I could at 
least choose to provide a flag saying which sort of operation I was 
trying to do...
