Hello,

I wonder why 'mv' is not allowed to act on directories. I found
somewhere this argument:
----
What should mv do to a `tree' that resides on multiple file servers?
If you can't do something right, sometimes it's not worth doing at
all.

-rob
----

but this doesn't go well in my ears when put alongside with the
existence of recursive rm ('rm -r').

Thanks
