Here is what I have in mind:

If the user wishes to perform a direct straighforward 
move, We let the user specify something along the lines 

    <target name="all">
        <move file="srcdir" tofile="destdir">

First of all, we let the user use file, tofile and todir to move directories too.

Note that the user must not override any of the other
default options, nor use FileSets.  Further, we caution
the user that s/he must use FileSet (as it is now) if 
move across volumes is gonna be attempted.

I suggest we do something along these lines.  If you feel
this is worthwhile to pursue let me know and I will 
clean up the code, document it, etc.

Scratchpad Patch to is attached.
